Drawing Made it to the College of New Jersey

I sent off the selected drawing to the college of New Jersey's National Drawing 2007 juried exhibition opening January 24, 2007. I was happy with this work; it had the dynacism I was seeking. I want my works to elevate me and vice versa. Happiness is something I can always find from a well executed work, even when everything else has me down. How many years in the factory was the dust, the noise, the low wages, the over-all dream-less life rendered mythic when a drawing made it out in spite of the situation. How soft that concrete bed outside a vacant church became when a drawing, its empty space sparkled with a certain human exactitude.
