Pond Sleeper



Pond Sleeper

Another sketch from the session with “BA” yesterday morning.
A cold dark uninviting grey world outside the studio, with threats of snow, inspired where I placed her when she decided to take a nap for the final pose.

Trapped In The Middle



Trapped in the Middle

Working up, then down
from the core,
before venturing out
to the edges.
It seems miles
from the brain above
and even further
to the feet
far below.


One of my sketches from a session with “BA” this morning.

9”x 12” ink, oil sanguine and chalk on craft paper

Forgotten



Forgotten

So many sketches like this.
Already forgotten experiences
pressured by the clock
as a small cynical voice
questioned every
stroke.

Another sketch from the session with “MU” earlier in the week. Almost forgotten, hidden between all the other sketches from the week.

11”x 14” ink and watercolor.
