Drawing, Pencil, Chalk and Ink from the 1950's to early 1970's

Drawing was one of my favorite pastimes. I started to draw and study drawing at the age of seven.  On and off for the next 20 years I continued my artistic expression. When pressure from work and family issues kept me from producing art of any kind I still tried to create some art.  Some of my early art has survived and below you can see some examples. I have found, in all the boxes that I have moved over time, some of my drawings. You'll initially see the female figure but soon I'll be posting drawings of animals and landscape from around the same time.  The drawings below were made while I was 15 to 19 years old. As you can see the paper that they're Drawn on is fragile.  They are over 60 years old.  I'm glad I found them, it brings back memories of some of my early times with pencil and chalk.
