Intentional Living: learning to be fully present

"Old Man"

I promised to post some artwork, and as I’ve been lazy lately and haven’t done a whole lot of new work, I thought I should post an older piece. This is an 18” x 24” pencil study I did (I spent a little over an hour) on a photograph from National Geographic. I actually had to take a picture of it with my digital camera because it was so big. It was a sort of liberating piece for me. I tend to be a perfectionist so working on something so big was a challenge: I could either obsess over details, or I could interpret the photograph and have fun with it. This ended up being one of my favorite drawings I’ve done.

  3. Good job. Makes me think of a song by Neil Young: “Old man take a look at my life, I’m a lot like you.”

  4. Thanks everyone! šŸ™‚
