abstract colored pencil drawing of words and letters by artist Lori Markman
NO!
Mixed media collage
16 inches x 13 1/4 inches
2017

This original mixed media drawing is made from pencil, colored pencil, photograph, and an old print. I had originally intended it as a tribute to a very dear friend of mine, so you see the word "love", "alive" "hope" "rest" "growth" in the background, but for some reason I was compelled to add the collage black star, and then the drawing transformed into a drawing about my then relationship and I put in the huge red "NO!" that covers the page--no love, no relationship. It was over.

Unfortunately, the photograph does not pick up all the fine linework, the layers of color, the subtle mixtures of color. The original shows the details the photograph cannot. The drawing is signed and dated.

The drawing is unframed and should be framed and matted to protect it.

The price of this drawing includes all domestic within the US shipping and handling. International shipping is extra and will be paid for by the buyer at a price arranged by the artist and the buyer.
