The End of Time

The completed drawing. Graphite pencils on A4 cartridge paper. From my own reference photo.

Sold.

I took the photo this is drawn from over three years ago. I thought it would be interesting to draw, and I think the image is symbolic. I first thought of it as “The End of Time”, so that is the title I have given it: of course this is just one of many possible interpretations.

When I shared a work in progress image I was asked if the drawing was for sale. My reactions to this query were interesting. Suddenly it needed to be “perfect”: of course it isn’t, but it’s the best I can make it. More significant was the realisation that something meaningful to me could be meaningful to others. In other words, art I make for myself can be of interest to other people — quite a revelation!
