This is a portrait of Dawson, who passed away from SIDS. I really felt compelled to draw him for his parents because it seemed as though he was here in a flash. Life ... it's so precious, and this child's life though short here, stayed on my mind, and I felt the need to draw him. At the bottom of the drawing is the bible verse from Isaiah chapter 49:16 that reads, "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands". The drawing is 11x14 in graphite.

This is a charcoal drawing of Michaelanglo's 'David' that I've just completed. I have always admired his artwork, and John Rush, a well noted illustrator told me to really study Michaelangelo's work. The statue of David is known all over the world, and I couldn't help but try and capture this iconic image.
