Here is a recent drawing I did on commission for a gal that had a specific idea she wanted illustrated. She and her sister exchange these HUGE gift baskets at Christmas every year. Her sister brings her a basket filled with cardinal and cow knick-knacks, tins, and ornaments.
One particular year, her sister was caught out in a snow storm–with three foot high drifts. The truck was stuck in the driveway leading up to the house. When she and her husband were nearly to the door, already having trudged through an almost impenetrable sea of snow, she remembered, ” I left the gift basket in the truck!!” This is the moment my client wanted me to capture. Who do you think won this tug of war? The gal or her husband?
This drawing is titled “Treasures in the Snow,” 11 x 14, pencil on paper.
