Drawing on strength and fragility
A couple of days ago I started this drawing. It was one of those drawings that I don't really have an idea, I just want to move the pencil around to see what emerges. I started with an oval shape and then lightly penciled in eye lids, nose, mouth, and thought maybe it looks like the moon, then I added a bird tucked under the chin and added hair on the head and it became a girl.
A sensitive girl tenderly holding a bird,
maybe the bird is injured, I'm not sure, only that
there is a mutual recognition that they each
need each other to live.
I will continue to work on strengthening this drawing. It seems to need to be sharpened somehow without losing the fragile feeling.
