That smile has brought me more joy
than a lifetime supply of dark chocolate.
That smile has brought me more warmth
than fresh socks out of the dryer on a cold morning.
That smile has come to give me a hard time
relentlessly picking at my nerves.
That smile has come to me when I needed it
without my asking, without warning.
That smile reminds me that there is laughter
and the world is amazing and kind.
That smile reminds me that success is abundant
without any fortune or fame.
That smile knows where to find me
when even I don't know where I am.
That smile smiles at me, the inside me
not just a title, a role or a name.
Got the under layer mostly blocked in. I will probably fiddle with it a little more and then add some color layers.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
