Why Graphite?

Frequently, this question comes up.

The answer is simple. It was all I knew from a very young age.
If I wasn't outside playing with my brothers, I was drawing.

I love how the shades in between the softest touches of wispy white and
the bold dark strokes of graphite bring out the emotion within a drawing.

To be able to master this medium requires patience,
an understanding of the subject matter,
and the ability to have the drawing
leap off the paper.

After years of practice, I am still amazed by the outcome of some of my
drawings. Frequently, I catch people reaching out to pet the soft muzzle of the horse.

The use of Graphite pencils invokes the imagination and
captures something I have yet to define.  I can only compare it to Ansel Adams'
photography. His pictures are timeless.  One look into the photograph and you see
the raw beauty; the colors and purity at it's most primitive.
