Kuhr + Lyon + drawing

The piece I chose from the Kuhr and Lyon Drawings exhibit was "Contessa's Garden, Lower Alley II" by Joyce Lyon. It is created by using graphite on paper. I was amazed by the beautiful detail in the picture and how she could create a glowing effect just by using a piece of graphite. I find the work inspirational because of the disappearing road. The effect of the disappearing road allows for the viewers imagination to pick what’s going to be around the corner. It creates a very peaceful, quiet, and serene atmosphere and I could definitely picture myself walking down that old country road.
