Charcoal Expressions

 
To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.
— Osho
 

I love watching the shades of grey transform into form as I draw with charcoal. To see the shadows come to light and an image come to life, as I blend and smudge the charcoal with my fingers, is always a surprise to me, as if it is revealing itself. I love working with textural paper, adding to the depth and energy of a piece...
