I finally have a video of a drawing beginning to end - it condenses 19 hours down to 3 minutes so it goes pretty fast.  Thank you to Cody Groom - an amazing videographer and photographer who produced and edited it for me.  Visit my website to view the video - also on youtube

I would love to hear your thoughts!

I'm old enough to know better but not old enough to make practical use of it yet. I enjoy drawing the beauty of nature - pretty much everything but I do have my preferences. I'm a mother of two beautiful girls who make me laugh and cry and scream almost every day. I wish I had a clicker to stop time so I could sit in my studio and draw until my hand feels like a lead weight without my house turning to chaos. I tell myself that I want to sell my work but the ones I REALLY like, I want to keep for myself...this could be a problem since that's most of them. I secretly wish for natural disasters, just not in my neighborhood. I have a mean streak but I'm working on it. I have four dogs, four cats, six turtles, 2 rats and some fish and it's never enough. I'll let you in on a secret - my husband hates animals...that's LOVE, right?? We've been together for over 20 years, shit - now I just gave away my age. I love to read but don't have a book club and this makes me infinitely sad. Seems like they are everywhere - like mosquitos! but alas I can't find one for myself. I'm a democrat with a brain - which means I use common sense but I still have a heart. I'm ferocious about gay rights but still have yet to go to one of the local PFLAG meetings in my town, too nervous. I like this president, hated the last one, loved the one before that BJ and all. I voted for Hilary. I long for Sarah Palin's implosion...AGAIN. And I'm an atheist who is always searching, searching, searching.

Positively spectacular work. 
Amazing video! Which pencils do you use?
It's scratchboard - so it was done with an x-acto knife and ink.

:) so are you. I am still astonished when I look at your work. It is beautiful, and seeing a little of your process and hearing of your focus was nice.

Congratulations!  Your work is truly worthy of hanging in a gallery. I am so glad that scratchboard is finally recognized as the fine art it really is.
