Gordon McCann

Gordon’s hope is that something he has rendered has stirred you in some way. He is mostly a self-taught artist working in graphite, carbon pencil and pastel pencil. Gordon’s love for expression in black and white began many years ago, while studying studio photography working with large format film cameras, though he put aside most attempts at artistic expression for most of thirty years. In 2013 after 20 plus years in pastoral ministry, Gordon found himself with a great deal of time on his hands. He picked up his pencils, and began to draw, and draw, and draw. A few others took notice of what Gordon was doing and encouraged him to continue. He took a short drawing class from a local artist and really began to like what was developing on paper.

Gordon drew a few portraits of grandchildren, a granddog, an old pickup, and so on. A few people asked if he could do drawings for them, and so it goes! Gordon was asked to do a dog portrait, but just didn't like how it looked in graphite, so he picked up some pastel pencils and gave it another try. He found he really liked the medium. So did the client. Gordon finds the process of creating both therapeutic, and at times frustrating. And yet, each day when he awakes, his first thoughts are often, "what shall I draw today?"
