This original pencil drawing is Shine On. This piece is derived from a vintage mugshot from the Central Sydney Police Department in Sydney, Australia. The young woman's name is Hazel McGuinness and her mugshot was taken on July 26, 1929. I find this image compelling because despite her circumstances, she carries with her a serene beauty and subtle radiance.

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

The actual image size is 4 1/2 x 6 5/8 inches. The page size is 8 1/2 x 11 inches. The artwork is sealed with fixative. It is signed and ships to you in an acid-free plastic sleeve sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard. It is unmatted and unframed.

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