You Raise Me Up

You Raise Me Up

You Raise Me Up
First attempt

"You Raise Me Up' are the lyrics to a Josh Groban song (If you haven't heard it, go to iTunes and get a copy--you will be glad you did).

After all the stuff going on I met another angel (Kerry being my first) at the hospital. A woman whose mother had similar problems and she had come up from Florida so was staying in the room. I was so overwhelmed with chores and she needed some work to earn some money. We bonded instantly.

So this drawing, done with a .5 mil mechanical pencil and a charcoal pencil, is dedicated to Tracy. The picture of the girl is just a sketch to give the idea of "girl". The hand I was proud of. I wish I would quit when I get done but I tend to piddle a picture to death. Somebody stop me. Let me know.

p.s. I redid the drawing because I was not happy with the girl in the Hand. The first drawing on this page is my second attempt.

Note from Kerry:
Hello sweet Sue
Your story is so beautiful, thank you! I can't think what I did to deserve such kind words or to be held in high regard but I am pretty touched all the same.

If you don't want to show the first attempt, please let me know and I will remove it. I think it's good to compare, to show how much we improve when we give something another go.

A good amount of artists tinker with their drawings so don't be so harsh on yourself about that little habit. That's why I use photocopy paper the most because it takes a wonderful amount of abuse from my eraser!
