Walls End




Walls End

Beyond the walls end
The islands await
The courage it takes
To continue past
To give in again

Another sketch of “B” posing yesterday. She was against a blank wall, well lit. The rest, just an idea, without enough time to finish before she wanted to sit.
The Islands are on my brain, these days.

  1. so beautifully drawn, seems so hesitant, why would she hesitate to go back to the islands, is it that she'll know she'll have to leave again and she doesn't she can bear the pain again? or does she feel like an intruder because she was able to leave, has she been shunned? this says so much I have trouble hanging to a thought

  3. She seems to be longing to turn the corner of that wall...yet is nervous of what she may find there.
    I think she will turn back?!

    1. My though was that she has been past the end of the wall before. Sometimes it’s hard to face the past.
