Illustration Friday - Quiet



This is a pen & ink drawing I did a while ago, based on a photograph that my father took of me when I was little. If I remember correctly, this is along one of the Great Lakes in Ontario, Canada. His photo truly captured my inner spirit quietly communing with nature. I hope that my drawing conveys that same feeling of quiet contemplation. The image has always spoken deeply to me and is something I treasure from my childhood and from him.

Beautifully drawn. I too love the peace of being beside the water, though our Pacific Ocean is rarely quiet!
