Paper Clips - Pencil Drawing - Just a Number Series

Description

This original pencil drawing is Paper Clips. It was inspired by an unidentified vintage mugshot. I wonder if the anonymous jailhouse clerk had any idea what a great piece of Minimalist art they were creating.

This piece is from my "Just a Number" series. These are derived from vintage mugshots or prison ID photos I find the people in these photos, usually identified only by a number, intriguing because to me they serve to remind us of our humanity, frailty, and need for redemption. We are all more than just a number.

The image size of the pencil drawing is approx. 4 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches on an 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of colored, acid-free Canson Mi-Teintes paper.

The artwork is sealed with fixative. It ships to you in an acid-free plastic sleeve sandwiched between multiple layers of cardboard. Watermark does not appear on drawing.


The artist retains all copyright privileges and protections. Sale of artwork does not transfer copyright.

This is my 2nd purchase from this PHENOMENALLY TALENTED artist. The photo doesn't do justice to the detail in this piece. There are many technically skilled artists. But, there are far fewer that can bring life and heart to their work. Her's are pieces you will want to frame and display proudly in your home.

It shipped on time, and arrived looking even better than I'd hoped it might. The artist sent me a nice note and that opened the door to a very helpful and meaningful exchange of information regarding the artwork and its inspiration.
