All in Art

"Sandra, can you draw?"

My art gallery dealer, Marti Koplin : "Sandra, can you draw?" Sandy: “Uh, I don’t know. I haven't drawn in a long time. I’m going to have to experiment.

My art gallery dealer: “Well, I’m curating a special exhibition here at the gallery of drawings by some of the nation's best artists. I’d like to include you in the show.”

This would be a ground breaking show. There had never before been a group show solely devoted to drawings, in a commercial gallery. It was a big deal and I definitely wanted to be included.

But, I hadn’t drawn since college. I never liked drawing because I loved color. I loved painting –– squeezing out gorgeous shades of oil paint onto my palette. Mixing together unique colors. Color. But, drawing? Not so sure.
