Day 44-20100913 by Cara Schingeck

Do you have loved ones in our war?

I do.

Do you ever wonder what it must be like for them?

I do.

Do you ever wonder if they are o.k.? Well of course you do.

Do you ever wonder who they are in our war?

I do.

I offer today a portrait of this.

    Interesting style.

  • Thank you-I work very much in the moment-I let my feelings guide my hand as I draw, I do put thought into whether I will use pencil, watercolor, color pencil, etc or what type of paper may work best to convey what I am feeling when I see an image that captures my attention and I know instantly from research-a story-a news event and/or thoughts that may be haunting me of the war and then I see an image and/or I wake up and I see the image in my mind’s eye and I draw, sometimes I take a bit more time and sometimes I don’t it depends on many factors which are difficult to describe really but it really is about doing my best to be in the moment with the subject of the portrait or the event which means that I am doing my best to be there, in the war to be a war artist even though I am not “there” with these brave subjects of my series Our War-I am not with my brother, I am not with these people who are there, I do my best so I very much appreciate your comment and your interest in this series that is very important to me and which I dedicate myself to until my brother’s return from his deployment. thank you once again.
