Still Searching





Still Searching

Still searching
to openings in the light,
above.

Still returning  
to memories behind lids,
suppressed.


Had a chance to sketch a few portraits of “RS” yesterday, later in the day, always fun.
1st: 17"x 14" ink
2nd: 9"x 12" ink and pastel on toned paper

  1. Those 'memories behind lids' - love the words and sketch!

  2. Indeed...still searching...for things we cannot see...cannot begin to imagine.
    For these memories are too personal to share.
    I love how she is looking up to the light in the first two...as if she is mentally in another, much more beautiful abode...of mystical recollection.
    Wonderful! :)

    1. The position of her head in each pose was requested. Only after when going through what I had sketched did the text evolve, did the searching become so evident..
      Thank you
