Description The Dream is a colored pencil drawing of President Barack Obama with Dr. Martin Luther King in the background. The American flag has a quote from Dr. King's I Have A Dream speech.....I Have A Dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: we hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.
Johnny Scott, Galveston Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement I am a self-taught artist who was born and raised in Duncan, MS. Duncan is a small farming town of 400 people in the Mississippi Delta; about halfway between Cleveland, MS and Clarksdale, MS. I now live in Texas and work full-time at The University of Texas Medical Branch.
As a child, I was fascinated with facial expressions and spent many rainy, cold days trying to improve what little skill I had.
As an adult artist (and I use that term loosely), I still have that fascination today and attempt to capture the emotions of my subjects in my drawings and wood carvings.
Thank you for your interest in my work. My wish is that it brings you just a small amount of the joy that I experienced in creating it.
I will be adding other art pieces over the coming weeks. So, please come back to see what I have to offer.
