Forest Vision

Forest Vision

Searched through a forest
said to cover ruins of better times.
I wasn’t able to find either.

When tortured enough by the foolishness,
ghosts step out in front of familiar trees.
They argued like I wasn’t there,
torturing each other and me.

It was enough to realize my stupidity.
Better times would not be found in a forest
smart enough to hide ruins with arguing ghosts.

A doodle sketch while waiting again, searching for anything not really there.

6”x 8” ink and chalk on tinted paper.

Afternoon With "EL"

Afternoon With “EL”

So yesterday afternoon I did these sketches of “EL” enjoying what she wore on her head, almost as much as the poses.

Some quick sketches, one from a session in Edinburgh, the other two in a session with “B” here over the summer. I remember the sessions. I know there was noise, probably some music too. I only remember the silence portrayed so well now.
