“JN” posed this morning, very important on her makeshift throne.

Prepared to compete,
to endure the abuse,
the pain. 
Yet still,

“J” conveyed a definite statement in this pose, probably better expressed without the attempt of words.
She questioned why I sketched her as her, rather than a guy, followed by a slightly sarcastic smile.
The pose was long enough for the two sketches here to evolve.
1st: 24”x 18” ebony graphite and chalk on craft paper

2nd: 9”x 12” ink and chalk on toned paper

Retreat To When

Retreat to When

Replace today’s tomorrow,
a certainty
of the next compromise.

Retreat to when
a future
didn’t include a past.

Another sketch from the session with “R” yesterday.
A story in every wonderful pose.
