My Drawing of Linda Ronstadt.....
I drew this drawing of Linda Ronstadt when I was in my late 20's. I remember I had only done a few of these "White drawings" on black paper...it was not easy as the light and shadows are just the opposite! It was a good unique way to teach the brain something, a different way of drawing and looking at things...but very hard. Look at all the details of the musical equipment and those huge headphones in those days!...wow was that difficult and boy do I remember I was so determined to finish this and so I did! Notice the pig on her t-shirt? She loved pigs still does I think.
I have most of all my original drawings I've kept through all these years in my portfolio. Or I've sold some originals through the years but then decided to sell more prints so I can keep the originals. I haven't sold anything in over a year due to the expense of making prints and the special glossy paper and the amount I had to put out to frame and ship them off. I haven't sold a lot through my life but I have sold them throughout my life if that makes any sense?
Anyway I remember I had only done a few of these "White on black" drawings. I hope to sell more of my Artwork down the road so I can make some extra money to help me be able to pay my rent when I get my housing soon I hope. Due to being on disability now it's a rough road but there is so much I'm greatful for like still being alive and around and kicking and able to walk! With the brain damage I've recently found out I have (and have had for years apparently) and my vision problems, I am not able to draw much like I used to. My hands shake..but I can still write my poetry..thank you Angels for that! Remember this drawing is old so a bit worn and faded..but it's the real thing!..............Hope your all enjoying the Holidays...Love and Peace, Rhiannon.
