Hiding in the Open

Hiding in the Open

A slightly challenging sketch from my vantage point, of a pose “ST” provided this morning.
9”x 12” fountain pen and chalk on toned paper. 


  1. I wonder what he is hiding from?
    It has to be something inside him...for we see him in all his glory.
    Although I am unable to see his face, I perceive a deeply-felt inner suffering...his entire pose exudes painful disappointment.
    My motherly instincts are evoked...I long to offer comfort...
    Oh wow...this is powerful...

    1. I was thinking at some point there is nothing left to hide except maybe seeing who is viewing all we would otherwise leave exposed?
      It is powerful. Maybe too to show a face as well?
