Wound Up Tight !!


Day after I got home I started this pencil drawing of the rope.
I chose this for the texture,  light , darks, and possibly because I felt wound up like this . 
I knew if I could submerge myself in something this detailed I'd have less time to think about myself.  It worked.  8"x10" . BJ

  1. That is so realistic! It amazes me how some people can get so much life from a pencil or pen.

  2. WOW!!!! that is so very cool, Barbra! Glad it is not a hang man's noose! Unraveled and frayed, it will be coming apart soon! and then you can skip rope with it! Dancing in Paris soon, I know!

  4. I love this work, Barbra, it's so meaningful. This is a real work of art to me, because beyond the skill to do it so well you managed to convey something very personal. I think art save us from the banality of everyday life. Hope I could tell you what I think, my english is not enough, sometimes...Wish you all the best

  8. This is fabulous dearest BJ. Your pencil work is amongst the finest I've seen. And the sad truth is that I live every single day feeling wound up tight like this.
