After two days of searching for an appropriate auction site, I gave up. Ebay turned out to be full of porn that I do not want my drawings associated with, and honestly if that’s what people are looking for there they won’t be looking for my kind of artwork anyway. It’s impossible for artists to get into Sotheby’s or Christie’s because they don’t seem to actually like artists, they only like collectors. All such art auction sites require a review that takes 6-8 weeks, and from reading the documentation it sounds like I would never get in anyway. I finally found a website called allartists.com and I listed my drawing there. It isn’t an auction site, it’s just a consignment site, but it will hopefully help me get some more recognition among people who are interested in buying art directly from the artist. Meanwhile I’ve also listed the drawing for sale here, on my own website as well. Thank you for your interest in my artwork!
I started drawing this Ayam Cemani rooster while I was volunteering at the art gallery. They had a lot of country themed artwork and I wanted to try to draw something that would fit in but that I was actually interested in also. I love chickens, especially rare breeds, so I chose an Ayam Cemani for my subject. I didn’t finish drawing him that day though and he sat on a shelf for several months. One day I was praying about how to get money to build a new chicken house, and the Lord said to me, “You have that drawing of a rooster you never finished.” He didn’t exactly tell me that He would make it sell, but I did get the feeling I was supposed to finish this drawing. So I told my daughter about my prayer and she immediately found the unfinished drawing. Then life happened and I didn’t get to work on it for two days. April 29th, I determined I was not going to do anything, not even eat any food (at least in part so that I would not get grease on the paper and ruin it), until I finished this drawing. I sat down at the table with the paper and pencils and did not stop until he was finished. I think he turned out really well! I am happy with this drawing. I hope the new owner enjoys him as well.

About the featured drawing: I drew this angel after experiencing a powerful vision during our nightly prayer time. I saw this image of an inconsolable angel that was blue with sorrow. I kept expecting the angel to stand up and spread its wings in praise to the Lord, but it just sat on the doorstep weeping and weeping in the most heart-shattering sorrow. I have seen visions of angels several times, but this was the only one I ever saw in color like this, and the only one I ever saw that wasn’t standing tall praising the Lord. When something so terrible happens that it makes the angels cry, it is very sorrowful indeed. The Bible promises us in Psalm 30:5 though that weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. I’m looking forward to that spiritual morning when joy fills our hearts once again, as it has been a very long night.
