I would like to share my current challenge in my world of art. I would like to start out by showing and explaining how I began my project. We have a glass top table in our boat house that I have ingeniously turned into a light table by placing a simple under counter light in the framework of the table; turn off the light in the boathouse and there you have a light table! I had a Homemaking teacher in high school that her favorite saying was “Necessity was the Mother of invention”!

Now to where I work after I have the ground work done for my drawing.

I have traced the large areas of the picture now I refine the details because all the lines on my drawing are mostly zigzags. I have a hard time because of my tremor making long lines so I refine the picture with short marks then refining even more as I work on the drawing.

Now for the progress I have made on my as I progress so far. I will keep you posted as I work so hopefully sooner than later I will get “Brothers Forever” finished.

 Hope you enjoy my journey with me through the completion of my drawing.

If you are interested in purchasing please contact me. I will work with you on availability and pricing.
