Utenbach Charcoal Horse

“I have learned that what I have not drawn I have not really seen, and that when I start drawing an ordinary thing, I realize how extraordinary it is, sheer miracle.”

-Fredrick Franck

There is such beauty in the things of this world, and when I take the time to slow down and really look at them I am amazed at the intricacies.  I think when I draw, I am actually making more mental connections to the things my brain sees.  Fun!

There is something freeing about doing a larger scale drawing, especially with charcoal. For me it feels like all the senses are being awakened as life’s worries and tensions begin to melt away.

Recently I came across art paper rolls (over sized paper); I could go even bigger.  I wonder if my family would mind a wall taken over by paper and charcoal.  It could be custom wall paper. Hmm, who knows what the future holds?
