The Power of Yes

The Power of Yes
Colored Pencil

The Pop artists showed us that we can appropriate imagery from commercial sources -- changing the context changes the meaning. Something I enjoy doing is collecting various images from multiple sources and moving them around to see how new meanings can be created. Once the collage is finished, I can use it as a reference for drawing. I finished this one this week.

This is a charcoal portrait of my father, George Wales. While drawing it, I thought about all he has meant to me in my life. He is the man I admire most.
