The Offering, Graphite and Colored Pencil on Film


The Offering
, Graphite and Colored Pencil on Film, 7" x 7"

This work has been submitted for the first juried exhibition, the Spirit of Giving at Everett Artists' Supply and Framing, December 5th through January 3rd, 2010. Acceptance letters will be sent out on November 20. The theme of this show is, of course, the spirit of giving. They will be embracing that spirit of giving by donating 10% of proceeds to the Everett Battered Women’s Shelter and Cocoon House Shelter for homeless youth. I applaud them in this and hope for a successful show and many sales!

I just love this end result, Barbara! So very lovely! I cannot decide if it evokes wonderful joy at knowing the bird has this home in the tree...Or if I am reminded of Poe! LOL Fabulous all the way around, truly. Good luck at the show; truly a wonderful cause.

I love your work on film, I've only tried one graphite piece on film and I'm not sure what I think of it yet but it seems you have perfected the art.

Barbara A. Freeman said...

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. You do beautiful work too! How did you like the feel of film compared to paper? It seems people either love it, or hate it.

Mom,
I love this so much! And while I like the body of your first crow the best, I like the eye in this crow better. I do see what you mean by it looking like it's happy and not having mystery to it but I think there's still some mystery. This crow's eye has more of a knowing smirk to it.

Barbara A. Freeman said...

Ha, I like that, Gina, "a knowing smirk"! I know we've talked about crows and how interesting they are. I always notice now when the evening comes, how they all start flying east. I'm glad you like this one.
