Donkey Notecards, "Twilight Promenade"
This detailed drawing portrays two donkeys, that are taking their usual evening stroll around the paddock enjoying the very last of the sun's rays. These are high quality notecards, frameable quality if desired, the notecard size is 4" x 9 1/4" and is part of the "Beyond the Fence" series. The full size drawing measures 9"x17", and took over 100 hours to complete. The original artwork is created using very fine mechanical pencils, .03 and .02 in size, gradually building up layers of graphite until the desired levels of darkness are met. My reference for the drawing are from my own photographs taken at a small farm a short distance from my home.

During the time of Covid I would make daily trips to the neighborhood farm, sometimes visiting several times in one day. I found it a sanctuary from the quarantine, the feelings of confinement, and the political rhetoric that surrounded the pandemic. I would visit with the animals, bring them treats and take lots of pictures. Until this point my primary subject matter has been that of mystical and fantasy topics, but the animals of the farm: alpaca, sheep, goats, horses, donkeys, pigs, calves, cats, chickens and more captured my heart to the point that I felt compelled to capture their images in my art. While the neighborhood farm initiated the series of farm animal prints, it has also inspired trips to other farms to collect more reference for my drawings.
The "Twilight Promenade" donkey drawing was accepted as into the 50 Artisits Exhibit at Studio 23 in Bay City, Michigan.
This notecard is perfect for those who love nature, the country, farm animals or a rural life.
