Alone



Alone

Alone, yet
not alone.
the silence
of familiar words
no longer heard.


Sketched a few days ago in a session with “EL.

The look questioning: “How much longer?” managed to show through.

Dead Castle Trees View



Dead Castle Trees View

A castle trees view of time,
thoughts while seeing you.
Foolish visitors ignoring
what still lives
while imaginations bleed
over temporary lives
in ruins of the
very recent past.

Sketch of some trees from a visit a while ago to Craigmillar Castle.

10”x 7” ink and watercolor

Within



Within

Watched
this not so very old woman
turn into
a not so young child
pretending
to find the myths
she still needed
to survive.  

Sketched earlier this week in a session with only a couple of lights on the floor to light up the dark..

9”x 12” ink and chalk on colored pastel paper
