Nothing makes me happier than creating a picture that possesses that certain “je ne sais quoi” quality, a quality of worthiness or meaninfulness–or maybe it’s just something I love. This week what has made me happy is one of my drawings from the Saturday life group, again using my color sticks. Last night I propped it up on my west-facing window sill to enjoy it. This morning the rays of the sun coming through my south-facing window played across the drawing and just blew me away.
I’m not sure what I have now, with this digital image of the drawing plus the sunplay. A digital painting?
Just for the sake of comparison, here is how the drawing looks without the drama.
