Summer Memories

THIS drawing (digital … done in SAI) is special.  A commission meant to be a gift for the generosity of friends.

This image is taken at a cottage, of a yearly summer get together.

I love the companionable feel, and the relaxed togetherness of these friends as they sit together, simply enjoying the beauty of their surroundings.  One might think that drawing the backs of the persons in the scene would tend to make you feel like an outsider as you look at it.  But I don’t think so.  I feel that this image draws you in.  It casually invites you to join these friends in their moment of appreciation; to grab a beer and share the peace and contentment that comes simply of looking out at what is beautiful in life.

The piece is not ONLY about the people.  It’s about where they are, what they are experiencing, and what they value.

I love it.
