" LOOK UP "

                                                      8  x  11   pencil 3B

                                I went to the Getty museums yesterday with my daughter, it was beautiful. We got a chance to see incredible  art paintings like Monet's "IRIS" and many others but at one moment I got a chance to see my daughter looking up into the light.
 The only thing I can say is I believe in something greater than ourselves even more glorious. 
So      "look up"     for there is more than what the mere eye sees.
                               Blessings to all this EASTER.               NFS

You're daughter is so beautiful... I'm surprised I don't see more work with her as the subject. I would love to draw or paint such a gorgeous young woman!

dominique eichi said...

She is, thank you Sheila. I have drawn her a few times before but yes your right I do intent to do a lot more with her as a subject. She even asked me to do a big piece so I might just include her in that.

This is a stunning portrait. The lines of her neck and the expression on her face tell a wonderful story.

dominique eichi said...

Cathy, Yes your right. They just come upon me with such determination and bring such peace and perfect knowledge of "Yes that's right" but I wish they're were more.

adebanji said...

Great drawing, I think I missed this one!

dominique eichi said...

Adebanji, you sure did. Your the one I really wanted you to see and get your opinion because I think I want to develop it more maybe with paint maybe just a stronger pencil charcoal I don't really know. Anyway I'm glad you got a chance to see it now, thank you. Hope you Easter was fabulous.
