The Hug, new drawing off the board!

Millions and millions of years would still not give me half enough time to describe that tiny instant of all eternity when you put your arms around me and I put my arms around you.

The Hug.

A wee bit of "soul balm".
One of life's most precious moments.
A gentle greeting wrapping two worlds in one blanket of emotion.

This latest drawing took me on a 4 month roller coaster ride.
The bar was set high: achieve better mastery of my pencils without loosing the one ingredient that ties it all together: soul.
Weeks, days, hours of nail bitting soul searching scribbling.


I hope you enjoy!

Sheona, it is perfect! Such a sweet drawing. I can feel the little tots love for the puppy. And each different texture (skin, fur, clothing) is spot on. I'd say you achieved your goal!
Stunning drawing,I love the details and the story it tells.
Stacy, thank you! Children are wonderful at giving us fantastic spontaneous heartfelt moments. This moment was one of them.
