"Ivan Kramskoy"

"Ivan Kramskoy"
5 x 7 in
Ball point pen

This ball point pen drawing I did for a show that they are having here in Minneapolis called "Foot in the Door".  It's being displayed at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, its open to all artist.  It's such a great venue to show your art and opportunity to be seen by everyone.  I am really impressed that the M.I.A. has done this for all artist, they do this every ten years so you can imagine the turn out they are having.  If you are interested in purchasing this drawing you can email me for more information.  Hope you enjoy!

As I click on the bottom drawing to see the close up, I'm am amazed by the flair and energy
in this!
Your attention to detail, and expression in the eyes gives me conversation with this.
I'll look forward to seeing it at foot in the door.

Great flair, especially with unforgiving ball point ink! The calligraphy of your lines is especially lovely. It's a fun thing, isn't it, to deliver your art to MIA; I was there on Friday at 1PM, and the line was only 10 minutes!
