Lakes Within




Lakes Within

Looking over ancient ruins
Warn down before we came
Escaping a world too large
For a place within


I sketched places near the islands today, making up for the time away.

  2. This is another of your wonderful sketches that I just long to step into...to follow my intuition into it's depths and find something precious I had long ago lost...that place within...:)

      Going back into the depths of places from the past through imagination is the best way to find that place within.

    1. Thank you.
      I have tried.. I find the need to decide on pen colors while sketching in the subject and composition,(where I am in my happy place) too stressful.
