Homeless by Deano

Close ups

Approx. 5x10 Mixed media in Moleskine Book.

The media: Graphite-Tombow Brush Pen-Pigma Brush Tip Pen (Sienna)-Acrylic washes( Ultr. Blue and Burnt Sienna).

This is my entry into Adebanji's book. His theme is the Homeless and the Poor.

We are participating in a group called "The Flying Moleskins". Each member has their own sketch book. He/she makes a drawing and sends the book to the next artist. Get ready, Vern...here it comes.

My Ohio county has around 8oo homeless. God loves the unlovable.

Hebrews 13:5&6 God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." 6So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"

  6. Powerful work, Dean. I especially love the special bond between the dog and the homeless man. No need for words. You have said it all.

  7. Powerful seems to be the common sentiment, Dean. Your choice of color and line work really tell the story. Bravo!

  8. I'm jumping in with the same sentiments; powerful, indeed. I really like the dramatic contrast between the man's face and his hand, also, the line work is spectacular!

  11. Powerful seems to be the word for this piece, Dean, but powerful seems to be inadequate. Dean, this is beyond words. The artwork is there, of course, but the emotional impact is downright stunning. The addition of "man and dog, through it all" is nothing short of pure genius. I, too, feel so honored to be among such talented artists. And, Dean, your faith shines through in all you do...bless you.
