30” x 19” pencil on hot press water color paper.
A simple concept; instead of the usual flowers with their sensual soft shapes, what we undeniably think of as beautiful, I placed some sticks and stones scraped from underneath my deck and filled a beer glass (I drank the beer first). In front I placed two more beer glasses, half filled with water and stuck in just a couple of sticks. The beauty is in the distortions, refractions, and transparencies. With each new layer of glass the sticks changes in detail, sharpness and direction. What first intrigued me was that the refraction of the second largest glass where the water completely hides the sticks and stones in the back glass. Sometimes I draw for just the love of it; this was one of those times.
You have always been an inspiration for me, Mr. Armin, not only for the precision and care of your pencil strokes. But also for you as a person (as far as I can judge by your written words) and for the subjects that you choose to draw. I do believe that you are one of the best artists alive and while I do believe that the amount of 'views' and 'favourites' do not matter when it comes to art - I do think that you are highly under-appreciated when it comes to deviantArt terms.
So after seven years, I have finally made the move to pick one drawing of yours to 'fave', along with this comment and a official watch, instead of being silent. Your description of the drawing basically tells you why this is my absolute favourite and why I admire your art. Thank you so much for all the pleasure that you have given me (so far), I am really grateful.
one day i guess. :]

The fractions and the glass. From afar, I thought it was a photo.
