I'm in a writing mood -
The annual Alumni+ Art Exhibit, sponsored by Kalamazoo Valley Community College, is coming up and this year I'll be entering "The Next Supper" and "The Next Big Step." My younger son is also entering for the first time with three pieces. His medium is completely different than mine - acrylic on Masonite. I'll post some pictures of the gallery from opening night - April 6. :thumb640366728: :thumb660653630:

You are very proficient at black and white pieces. it can be quiet challenging to remove the color, yet keep the mood of a piece, but you seem to have gotten it quiet well!

Thank you, Anna. I'm sure you will enjoy the challenges of white pencil on black paper. There are many good examples of creative work in my Favourites Folder to show you the possibilities. I'm looking forward to seeing your next drawing.
