Going back a few years....I had always drawn and painted things for friends and family. But i decided it was time to start getting more serious as my main goal was to be able to paint and draw into retirement. I had never really put much thought into it. But now i know what i'd like. I'd like a studio where people can come and sit down, create something beautiful with me and relax and have fun. So to start out, since i love drawing with charcoal at the time. I had come across all of these amazing black and white photo's in the archive at work and i asked permission to use them. I felt that these were something that needed to be shared with more than just a single group of people who had access to the archival vault. There was hundreds of photo's. These are just a few i decided to draw.
