Mother Nature Sells Out

Susan Ellison's avatar Susan Ellison

In looking at this graphite drawing, I want to question the viewer to think about what things they view as precious. Man collects, organizes and creates. He becomes attached to objects and then he discards them. What should we really treasure in life? Although I work with photo reference in creating art work, I have spent time drawing and painting directly from nature and combine information gathered in the field with photos I take and apply all this information to help me create a final image.
