Angel of Mercy
I honestly can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't drawing. My first art kit came when I was about 7 or 8 years old but I was always drawing something and knew I wanted to be an artist. I never had an epiphany, it's just who I am. So, I wanted to share some of my drawings on the blog. I think most of the Tea Society ladies are familiar with my artwork by now but I wanted to show some of my favorite conte`crayon drawings. I love that the conte` pencil gives the impression of a red chalk Renaissance drawing and that's why I chose it to work with. The subjects I choose are very varied but I have an absolute passion for cemetery angels and they are among my favorite subjects. Two of the angels here are from a series of notecards that I made a few years ago. The other is of a Connemara Pony( I am a Kentucky girl after all and had to have some Equine Art thrown in for good measure.) I hope you enjoy them.
