Name-a-drawing Contest Winner is....






Anne Marie Scotto!

I have decided on a variation of her submitted entry, "Joyful Grace" and have named this print:


Thanks so much everyone for your wonderful suggestions, it was awesome to see how everyone had a different take on what the drawing signified for them. I really appreciate the input. This was a lot of fun, and I plan to do this again!

You can purchase this print as an 8x10, 5x7 or 4x6.

I can also do custom sizes and colors other than black....send me an email if you have any questions!

Thanks for playing!

Worked on this last night.

5"x7", black ballpoint & colored pencil


New drawing, "Cloud Lifting"

 Been working on this sketch for a couple of weeks. It started off in graphite, playing with straight lines.
Expanding on the basic lines, adding texture and shading.
As I worked on it, the concept of pulling the veil of sadness away, or finding light through darkness began to influence the direction. I overlaid colored pencil over the graphite, emphasizing some dark lines with pencil again at the end.
Final version, with the tape pulled off and edges clean.
A reminder that dark moments do pass. It is one that I try to keep in my thoughts always!

Prints of this piece can be purchased at my Etsy shop (8x10, 5x7, 4x6)
