Black and White

I love the physical action of drawing – the resistance of the paper to a number 2 pencil, or the steady pulse of pilot pens. A quick sketch gives the satisfaction of completing something and of a relationship to the subject matter. I’m partial to remains of farms and barns, homesteads and remnants of mining towns. Someone’s hopes and dreams of a better life? certain riches? building a legacy for their family? Those tattered buildings speak to me and drawing them is one way to listen to their stories. I feel that, in some way, I can also talk to those builders: I appreciate your efforts and I care about your time here.
