A little while ago I received request from Laurie Bostian seeking permission to sketch one of my images from Kerala, India. The result is below and while I will let you make your on mind up, I love it. This was taken from my image “Wash Day”.
Thank you Laurie, why not check out more of her work?
Enjoy the weekend.

John Grant’s work inspires me. Takes me places. It makes me laugh and hope and wonder. During the creation of this piece, I wondered about the conversations they might be having out there. I wondered what quiet thoughts were going through their minds. I wondered if they were running down a checklist of things to do after that task was done. I wondered what the temperature of that water was. I wondered what their personal struggles were. I wondered what they looked forward to.
The beautiful thing about painting figures is the opportunity it affords me to put myself in the place of another for just a short time.
Thanks again, John Grant. It was a pleasure.
