    the words that go with the artwork are as strong and meaningful as the work itself.

    Hi Beckie-
    The thing I loved the most about this was the simplicity YET demanding strength of your design… The little soft spattering of color that radiates off the left side showing the warmth of your sun rays is just amazing. I know this is done in pastel and even looking at it large I couldn’t figure out HOW the HECK YOU DO THAT? It’s so clean and random. Is it shavings? You got to tell us how, Beckie!!

    Hi Beckie,
    Your drawing is so beautiful. I’m also very intrigued by the soft glow on the left side and throughout the artwork. It adds a lot of depth.

    Love the movement and the contrasting light/dark
