Graphite Artists.

Well our catastrophic fire alert, turned out to be catastrophic. My heart goes out to the poor souls who lost their homes and everything in the fires we had. What a Xmas for you. At least no lives were lost, something to be thankful for.

How heartbreaking it must be to lose everything you own like that, all belongings Xmas presents and photographic memories just up in smoke.

Xmas day is now nearly over for another year,  quite but relaxing day. The latter part of it I  spent going through some old graphite drawings I had done awhile ago, my love of graphite and charcoal is undiminished, and spent some time on the web going through different blogs offering a look into their work, how beautiful some of it is. I found an amazing link to pencil artists and had a ball going through that as well.  Felt like a kid in a candy store.  This link is of some of the best pencil artists in the world.   So I really consider myself lucky to have found it.

Years ago I had a hobby in photography, and even in that I always leaned towards black and white photos. I think it stems from when I watched the really old movies  and fell in love with the way they did the lighting way back then.

I have my usual coffee with me,  and am going to go back into pencilartists and drool some more. Hope your Xmas was wonderful.
