Mother and Daughter

One of the first drawings I remember doing was something like this. It was the first thing I ever sold to a friend of my mother’s; this lady was very supportive of my art and it thrilled me to sell something. I wish I still had that piece. It was white paper with the geometric shapes drawn in black. 

I really enjoy drawing at work on the Strathmore black paper. The paper takes colored pencil really well and the white pencil is almost down to a nub.

    I like the way the facial features are implied in different ways with the same triangles because of the contrast. Excellent.

    Very cool. Do you do art while on conference calls or lunch break or is work just not busy? Lol.

    I like the black and white, and I agree the shapes are like a mosaic.
