Just finished this commissioned drawing for a couple in Orange County. The interesting thing is that this was the third time I created this image. The first time I drew this image I was still in art school and it actually was a project I did in a drawing class for a local church. The church wanted four different drawings to illustrate different stages of advent. My theme was on abundance...this is what I came up with. A couple of years later there was a couple in that church that commissioned me to make the same image for their home....five years after that again another request for the same image. This piece was fun to create even on the third time around, it is interesting to revisit after so many years even challenging to recreate. the first drawing was fairly large around 5 x 3 feet, this recent drawing was 30 x 22 inches. It is all charcoal, the clay pot is done with pastel.
