pencil on paper drawing – (original SOLD)
image size: 8.5 × 11.5″
Please NOTE: I use the image of a child often in my drawings to denote innocence, purity and vulnerability – universal qualities that I hope/believe (in my own mind/heart) are innate qualities we all carry with us no matter our age.
ALSO, I was completely moved the first time I saw a photo of Frances Cobain by Herb Ritts in Vanity Fair. I used her for reference for a whole slew of my child drawings. Many years later, I was struck by a photo of my own niece who arrived in my life and altered it in ways unimaginable. All my friends thought my drawings were ultimately about her. I really don’t know.
