I have started a drawing while I wait for the next commission. I am drawing a picture from a photo that I took and have always loved. To me it represents my daughter's adoption from China and how her culture and ours combined. It represents looking forward with determination to her future, yet always being able to look back at her past. The American flag is held in front of her and the Chinese flag behind. The original photo only had the American flag, but I felt like the drawing needed to have both flags to really represent her adoption. Follow along as I develop it. I made the photo a little darker so it would be easier to see the light lines of the drawing.
