Drawing - Beginnings

Drawing from life is a very intimate look into the way an artist sees and thinks. I like to draw on toned paper with conte, pastel pencils and white chalk. When my grandson George was born in Oregon, I did 2 tiny drawings of him when he was 3 days old. Being ready to draw, when the opportunity...or that little bit of time presents itself (like, when your child naps) is key to continuing to draw (or paint) when you become a mom.

Like my paintings, my drawings are often fast, notes really, suggesting light and form.
