Into the Light

Out of the chaos, I cling to hope and a brighter future. Presently I project to invest my time and energy in producing new artwork and living my life from a clear center of defined purpose. This last year has been a bleeping rollercoaster.  I used to like rollercoasters, but not the emotional/financial kind that I have been on since my mother died.

I am an artist. I enjoy doing portraits, pets or people. I like working with old photos.  I plan on doing more nostalgic art. I enjoy working in different media.  I am available for commissioned artwork. Please contact me at eeschwege@gmail.com if you have a sincere interest in having a custom artwork done for you.

Final drawing

After a few tweeks, I decided it was finished. It’s from a photo taken around 1945, earlier than I thought but found notation that dates it better. She was 19 then. I just like the casual grace of her pose as she leans against the tree.
