Unwelcome Answer

knowing either way
the answer will be 
wrong.
Knowing either way
the answer will
end in sleep,
alone.


Some sketches of “SR”. He posed this morning for a session I attended.
1st: 9”x 12” fountain pen, oil sanguine and chalk on toned paper
2nd: 16”x 12” fountain pen, oil sanguine and chalk on colored paper

    1. It’s images, facial expressions and body language. They are such good story tellers. So many more options could have been created, beyond the story told.
      Thank you

  2. Aww...and he was so brave in asking the question...only to receive the wrong answer.
    He is so sad and dejected...to sleep away the disappointment is all he could do under these circumstances...although he would have much preferred to have not been sleeping alone.
    Such a sad story here, Anthony...I feel his pain...

    1. Such images in your hands become a much more enticing story than my beginnings could suggest. I have a desire to sketch in a body, a face looking over his body in the second sketch, just to change the ending, reduce the pain☺
      Thank you
