SOLD: "Balance": Original Charcoal Drawing on Canvas, 24" x 36"
SOLD! Prints available soon!
This bad-ass heron has a story to tell, and I just had to draw him again. My mom has taken so many photos of this guy over the years, and I think she captured his essence in this one (so much more at www.janicesanborn.com). The pattern of feathers on his long neck is like a sleeve tattoo, and he just dares anyone to ask about his wonky leg. Who knows what happened to him, but I don't think he lets it get him down. Maybe it's a she? Now, that would be cool...:).
Because I'm not a fan of hiding drawings behind glass, I've been experimenting with charcoal on canvas lately. This one is sealed, varnished, and I think it has a more modern look. c. Katie Sanborn Daker, 2019
