I felt that this piece fit the topic of poise, in particular being poised and ready for action. This is a drawing of Lefty Gomez. From what I remember, he used to play with Babe Ruth. I'm sorry I don't know more, but I am not a big baseball fan.
This was another piece created for a baseball show here in Greensboro. Before I came up with a system to work with color, I used to stain my paper with either coffee or tea, then draw on top of it and add highlights with white pastel. This one was done in colored pencils.
I hope that I'm not forcing the topic here... the connection may seem like a stretch.
Have a great week, everybody!
