Safe Place - Charcoal commisssion by secrets-of-the-pen
Safe Place - Charcoal commisssion
A very cool commission that is inspired by one of my favorite cards from my 366 charity project in 2012. My client came to me with the idea to use the peaceful feel of the original concept to show the gentle relationship she has with her boyfriend.

Created with chalk and charcoal on gray paper in about 50 hours.

My client came to me with the idea of creating a piece that would reflect the gentle nature of her and her boyfriend's relationship and I just love the way it turned out!

When I'm drawing....the whole world melts away. Stresses disappear, all torments of the heart light as a feather. It's in these moments when I hear God most and know his purpose and peace alive in my soul. ♥

-----

It has taken years and endless hours of practice...but I finally feel able to claim the title of "Artist". And I never thought I could love it this much. But I do. I live what I love and I want to share it with you!

Like everyone else I started out in coloring books and stick figures! I was the girl sitting in the back of class, hurrying to get classwork finished so I could draw and daydream. I love to try everything...drawing, jewelry design, music, photography ...really anything I can get my hands on.

But I seem to have found my niche in dry media artwork. The way it blends, the effects and mass amounts of detail I can put into it fuel my love for creating. There are endless possibilities and there is always more room to grow.

Been a while since my last journal so I wanted to say hi! Thank you all for your continued support, it means the world to me!

So first off, last May, I delivered the gigantic check from my 366 project! With continued cards in 2013, we’ve raised a total of $3,000 for the Safehouse and Alternatives to Violence. It was an amazing feeling making that donation and I thank you all SO much for your support!
http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/037/d/3/100_9308_by_secrets_of_the_pen-d75cse2.jpg

I’ve been drawing away and learning SO much and I’m excited to keep sharing my artwork with you all! For 2014, one of my biggest goals is to do more of my own original work on top of commissions! I just invested in some new pastels that are perfect for dry media painting and I’m thrilled about these vibrant colors! Be on the lookout! :D

Thanks for checking in!
:heart: Lainy

Hello:iconcocowaveplz:

I'm here to invite you to take a little time to visit the group TheFavouriteShowcase, since you are a member and I haven't seen you around much - I'd like to see more of you!

Currently, we are voting here  Monthly Themes NOVEMBER_ANIMALS win points!:iconthefavouriteshowcase:

ALL INFO ABOUT THE THEMATIC FOLDER HERE 
http://thefavouriteshowcase.deviantart.com/gallery/29360832


Hello dear members of TheFavouriteShowcase, friends and deviants,
This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge at TheFavouriteShowcase: instead of using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites! 
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watcher
  

to find the favourite works to our challenge WILD ANIMALs. 
Would you please help the voting? 
By +faving the blog you will also enter a draw to win 10 Points.

Our theme for December is SANTAandGIFTs. The folder will be open on the 1st December and it would be great to have your participation Nod



Thank you for being a member,

Elsa :iconpinklilyplz:

You're very sweet to say that! :thanks:
I was always impressed by your dedication to draw constantly and with so much passion... Do you ever feel the need to take a break for a while?

:D
I definitely feel the need for a break every now and then. I always take breaks around birthdays and holidays with my family - that time is super important to me! I try not to go longer than a few days at a time, though - I'm just much happier when I can draw. :) Do you take breaks, too? I'm always curious how fellow artists care for their passion & nurture their skills!
