a stance of open humility is not a place of weakness, but rather an acknowledgment of our limitations.

    This is one of your best works because you paint life from a different angle its so expressive and says so much the path taken the way one foot hides the other the detail on the material but its the cracks on the feet that take the time but they are the magic of this. The way of the lord is a rocky path with lots of trips to stumble on but if you can keep drawing like this something good is happening and I am happy for you

  • lol- it sure was a tough one to set up and photograph for reference! when I saw the cracks on my heels, my impulse was to pumice or edit. but I prefer to work in bare feet when I can- so I thought well- whatever. thanks for that input Tim.

    I love how you render fabric…again another amazing work, full of meaning and a genius way of representing it.

  • fabric folds, curves, layers, undulates and makes for such great value studies,
    yes -layers of meaning too. humility, openness, receptivity, vulnerability, seeking, intimacy, grace and reliance on the Lord for guidance and protection.
    thanks and I appreciate your feedback.
