this is a posting of the first artist who inspires me. her name is jacquelynn estay. she is a friend of mine in san francisco. this charcoal piece made it into the academy of art spring show, and for good reason. it is titled "black girl coming out of the water with drops on her face". pretty original, huh? that tells you something about her sense of humor. with this piece, she has made it into the limelight. i love it so much because she has made it look like a photograph. it is difficult to tell that it was done with charcoal.
