The Hands

As much as I love being overly critical of my work, I absolutely adore this simple piece, drawn with pencil and white chalk on colored paper.  It was a homework assignment for my AP Art class, so one day, I just sat down and decided to do it, and  the muse must've been with me that day because I whipped this baby out in only two hours.  When I brought it to school the next day to consult with my art teacher about the background, he threw one look at it, unabatedly exclaimed "Holy sh*t!" and ran off to share it with his colleague.  The work later went to be featured in the Local Teen Arts Festival.
