A Sister's Love

Keith Foster: R.I.P

Yolanda walked into Monroe Vacuums and Supplies located at 622-J W. Roosevelt Blvd Monroe NC 28110 to get a bag repaired for her Kirby Vacuum. She noticed a few Art works that lined the wall of the shop and said that she always wanted a picture drawn of her Brother, who died in 2001. The idea was to surprise her mom and present it to her on her Birthday. She returned to my store with a small wallet size picture of her brother and commissioned me draw it. I was deeply  honored. Yolanda (shown here) was excited to see the finished drawing of her Brother Keith Foster. She is already placing an order to get a drawing of her son. Thank you Yolanda.

Many of us were taught that practice makes perfect. Such a catchy cliche has been used to motivate aspiring athletes, singers and just about anyone across the globe who want to succeed. I worked with a group of motivated people for many years and they taught me that practice makes improvement......not perfect. I guess the idea came from the fact that none of us stand perfect. After starting to draw again, I'm reminded of another variation of that cliche...practice makes permanent. I think I'm, sold on the latter.
1. Practice makes perfect: If you practice something the wrong way, then you've successfully mastered it perfectly wrong.
2. Practice makes improvement: The sames goes for this saying, if you practice your craft without the proper technique, then you'll just be very good at being very bad.
3. Practice makes permanent: I'm realizing more and more that practice is important, but practicing the proper technique is vital to my improvement.

So, practice, practice, practice, but now I'm focusing on practicing the right technique, the right way with the right attitude and then I'll get my desired result.

This drawing is currently hanging in my store

Felicity (My first Portrait)


I found this poem on bluemondie.blogspot.com. I thought it went well with this sketch of my little Niece.

If I like it, it’s MINE
If it’s in my hand, it’s MINE
If I can take it from you, it’s MINE
If I had it a little while ago, it’s MINE
If it’s mine it must NEVER appear to be yours in any way
If I’m doing or building something, all the pieces are MINE
If it looks just like mine, it’s MINE
If I saw it first it’s MINE
If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes MINE
If it’s broken, it’s YOURS
