HUNGRY EYESposted by Shirley Janisse
The eyes of this little boy drew me in. I saw his hunger for "more". His yearning, his wanting, his sadness and despair. I wanted to capture it as much as I possibly could. We all have this desire within us yearning for "more." Sometimes we dream for more, but we never achieve our dreams, and sometimes we are born in a world where we are just grateful to survive the day, not given the opportunities as others have been given. This boy lives in that world, and yearns for so much more. 14 x 17 on Strathmore medium drawing paper, Derwent graphite pencils.
