Artist-curator Mel Reese included my drawing let there be warmth, let there be light in this edition of Art In Res’ Weekly Curation, Abstract Thoughts. She writes,

“The beauty… is in the imperfection, the moments when we can spot the hand of the artist in the perpetual loop.”

This drawing is available for sale via Art In Res, which allows you to pay in monthly installments if desired. I will contribute 50% of my proceeds from the sale of this piece to Brooklyn Defender Services.
