Gabrielle Rose -
"The last thing I drew was almost a year ago, summer at the cottage in Quebec, where, after a couple of weeks of unplugging, I find I often start to do a little art. I, generally, use pastels and always, it is of the countryside near the cottage . The lake or the flowers or the trees. This is my first time trying to work with charcoal. I am not in any way artist but I do find it gives me great peace of mind and pleasure to play with making pictures. Working with charcoal was interesting and quite messy! My first two efforts were rather dismal affairs and on bemoaning my lack of talent to my husband, he said" Don't draw what you see, draw what you feel" . Here is the result."
