Artist's Description

nature heals nature soothes nature restores.
I had intended this to be a peaceful piece. My reference was actually a very calm expression. I struggled with it, interruptions break focus, stop and start is not productive for me. But what I realize is this one had not caught the wave yet. I WAS peaceful and full when I started it, but my state of mind kept changing by the circumstances of many changing situations. You cannot draw a peaceful picture when you are not peaceful. So I realize I was trying to steer the boat into a different harbor and really it was exhausting . . . until I let go and yelled Oh GO WHERE YOU WANT!! so i did. I am like the pheasant that goes back into the brush, when she hears trouble. Compass plant (for direction), Shagbark (for healing and strength) and Elderberry (for wisdom).
Tech notes:
Graphite on hot press illustration board # 218, because it has a very smooth hard surface that really can take some vigorous erasing action!. Full range leads from 7Bs to 9Hs and then graphite powder. I smeared it over this and then I actually dipped a brush into water and painted with graphite and water. Interesting experiment for me. But I gotta say, use a mask when you work with that powder, I feel like absolute crap breathing that into my lungs. blah.
