Along for the Ride

Susan Hillary Carroll Hardy's avatar Susan Hillary Carroll Hardy

Along for the Ride is my interpretation of a young child enjoying her first ride on a carousel. I have experimented in many mediums as an artist -- oil, acrylics, wood, bronze, silver and watercolor. The medium used here is the simple #2 pencil and white paper.The pencil's rawness reveals details no other art technique can replicate and provides no mask for mistakes. I find its challenges exhilarating, leading me to match this simple yet revealing art style with a simply pure moment in life. It measures 42 inches x 30 inches. This drawing was done to educate the public that the simple pencil and paper is all one needs to create art.
