I drew this practice picture a few years ago as prep for a pastel piece I did on dark paper (I don't think I have a copy of the final). I have a special liking for line art and so even though this was not a finished peice in itself I saved it and today when I was going through my files I found it and thought I would share it with you. There is a story behind this picture - but it is too long. In short I conceptualized this piece for a friend who was going through a difficult break-up with someone she had grown very close to. She had many late nights agonizing and praying for help in knowing how to handle the situation. I knew what she was going through since I was involved myself and I wanted to give her something to show how I felt and cared for her- this was it.
