9x12 Charcoal on gray paper
Another reference by Rebecca Parker.
This is going to be another giveaway.
I wanted to say something really insightful about dreams when I posted this. I wanted to tell anyone that reads this to follow your dreams or dream big. I wanted to be encouraging and kind. For some reason, none of the things I wanted to say will flow off my fingertips.
There are many different kinds of dreams. There are the kind that happen when you fall asleep. There are dream jobs, dream homes, dream weddings, dream cars and dream dates. There are the kind of dreams that are more like goals. There are the kind of dreams that resemble wishes. There are good dreams and bad dreams.
The subject of dreams is a pretty broad topic.
Maybe I should just post a drawing and say..
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
