Charcoal Drawings

The Charcoal Drawings are spiritual, emotive works of art which evolve from an ability to sense and release energy onto the paper. Each image is created from meditations focused on the essence of energy. From these works several series of work have evolved. A selection from these series has been presented here. The initial series is across the top, the vortex series is on the right, the returning home series is on the left and the plant series is along the bottom. Enjoy the energy!
