Compassion... Pass It On

by: Judy Brown, Littleton, Colorado

I'm new at my school. Everybody glares at me, I'm nervous. A girl steps from the crowd, she smiles. I smile back. She's new, too. We walk SIDE BY SIDE to our classroom - new friends.

Artist Statement

I did not begin to pursue art until I was in my fifties. Pen & ink is the medium that intrigues me the most. I am constantly amazed at the way a few simplistic lines can make such a powerful statement. Here, each drawing shows a woman embracing a child, all in the same very intense way. With just a few strokes of the pen, the women are from different cultures.
