I believe the piece speaks for itself. The original is graphite on watercolor paper.

Thank you. It took about five to six weeks to draw. It received a second place award at the Civil Rights Museum in Birmingham.

I believe the original is 21" in the width. It took about five weeks to complete.

Thanks Olga for the comment and the review. Ever seen the TV show Stargate? You remind me of Samantha Carter.
Have a good one and keep up the art!

Thanks for the kind words. I did this drawing for a competition that was to be held at the Civil Rights Museum in Alabama. I wanted to do one of MLK, but it wasn't until after I began that I researched more of the history of the man. He was certainly a man of conviction and a figure-head for the 20th century.

Thanks for the kind words. Keep up the art and poems. Poems are an outward expression of emotion just much as a painting.

Thanks my friend. Obviously I did not take the photo of MLK, but I found one that I liked and then took some shots of the flag to use as a background. I used the two images to draw from.
