This colored pencil piece is both evocative and realistic, from color choice to texture. You can feel the emotional connection between the tiny hand and its grownup counterpart. The artist drew inspiration for the drawing from a photo taken just after her daughter’s birth, as the tiny newborn grabbed the her grandfather’s finger for the first time.

Congrats Stacy Powers! We’ll be reaching out to you soon regarding your prize: one free Bluprint class of your choice!
