No.2 Pencils and Love
I am sitting here in the middle of your chest.
I will Love again no matter what you may think.
I wish you could See.
I won't burst or break.
I want to Love fully...completely...you...me...All.
I fear nothing, for I am Love.
Drawing - 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Illustration board was painted, then coated with white gesso. The drawing it done left handed, including the coloring of the hair. Right handed, I wrote the words "come let me love you..." (John Denver lyrics).
This technique came out of realizing how much I love classic No.2 pencils. I used one for the line work. Short. Long. Dull. Sharp. Brand new. Slightly gnawed. Oh, I forgot how much I love yellow No.2 pencils!
The words were inspired by writing exercise taken from The Art of Personal Imagery by Corey Moortgat.
