Sign of the times

It's difficult for an artist to maintain the integrity of their original artwork. In an age where digital technology allows everyone to make perfect copies every time, who knows whether you are seeing the original or a copy? One artist was asked, "How many works of art have you created?" The artist answered: "Two thousand, and five thousand of them are in the United States."
Going back to school, in part, is also a personal quest to be a voice for the recognition that original art deserves. Somehow, spending 45 hours on a drawing is not the same as Google Image Search and "save-as." The image shown is a digital copy of a photograph of my original oxidized silverpoint drawing of a pewter vase. Can get confusing, right?
