New art

If I had lots of money I'd be an art collector. I have very little money but I'm rich in creative friends.
 Alex Copley who is the amazing artist of the above charcoal drawing and I have worked together for a few years. I didn't know she had started sketching until we got chatting last Saturday about craft ideas for my next batch of amigurumi and she offered to show me her sketch book. I was really impressed by her talent, her personal style and slightly dark themes. Quite a few of her sketches really appealed to me. The above charcoal of a girl at a gravestone surrounded by loving ghosts was one of the fist charcoal works Alex has done. I loved it and was beyond chuffed when Alex said I could have it (for a small fee). I feel honored to own Alex's first sold piece of art and I'm really hoping her confidence in her ability continues growing and she gets more pieces finished and available for sale cause I want another while I can still afford her work :)

  1. That's a lovely sketch- it has a beautiful quality of line and really wistful feel to it- not surprised you snapped it up!
