Mother Goose - complete

Mother Goose
Graphite 9 x 12

Here is the final image of Mother Goose completed and framed (the little spots of white are the reflection of the camera in the glass). There were a few more tweaks to get it right after digging it out from the pile of unfinished drawings in the cupboard in my studio.

Some things are worth salvaging and this image had the 'awwwwww' factor in it so it was a keeper. I'm not sure of its final fate quite yet, most likely on a wall somewhere in my house - unless I get a better offer.

I remember this from a Wet Canvas WDE. At least I think that was it. It always makes me smile.

This is a great drawing and different from the norm, little goose looks so comfy in there, love it.

Sydney, I think I did put it on a WDE last year, I can't remember now! It is a cute image. The little gosling was sweet.

Thanks Pencilwizard, I always seem to have some animal hanging off me, whether by choice or not. :)

i think you made a wise choice to direct your gaze away from the viewer, Jeanette. you've become a part of the composition rather than the focus of it. i've got a hunch this will sell and soon.

Thanks Billie. I never really considered composition a lot in this piece. It just sort of happened. However I think it worked out ok and I do hope I can find a home for it.
