Gracefully Grey


Graphite sketch on drawing paper


While sketching this lady for my last art assignment, I was taken by the graceful beauty of this aged woman. In a society where beauty is so over rated and plastic surgery is feeding the vanity of many, I cannot help but wonder about the art of true beauty.

I look at this woman and see such kind eyes, pretty with compassion and care. Lines on her face that portray a lifetime of laugher mixed with sadness. She has a sence of serenity and calmness, a gentleness in her age of beauty.Our wonderul God made each and everyone of us in His own special way. We all have a very unique look that no one else shares. How marvelous it is to be unique and special to God....
