Sketches from Readings.

Where have you hidden,
Beloved, and left me moaning?
You fled like the stag
after wounding me;
I went out calling you, but you were gone.

Shepherds, you who go
up through the sheepfolds to the hill,
if by chance you see
him I love most,
tell him I am sick, I suffer, and I die.

from The Spiritual Canticle St. John of The Cross


  1. This is so beautiful, I'm so happy to see this ! I love everything in this drawing ! (and especially the sheep :)))) )

  2. Beautiful - it took me a moment to see the hill-woman... beautiful! Just letting you know that I scrolled through all the posts, then I saw yours, and clicked right away, sure I would find deep mystery here. You didn't disappoint!

  3. Such a moving piece,love the lady. Beautiful.

  4. I am completety surprized about this wonderful abstraction of these verses! I fell in love with this stag, the whole composition is so amazing. I think , a lot of souls will fall in love, seeing this.

  5. Such sad verses... I love how the drawing flows and how it has all these ways to go in and out. The stag and the woman are great!

  6. oh, sigh... your drawing is so lovely. so utterly expressive... xo

  7. Even before I saw the text, I understood the sadness of this work, the quality of being lost and seeking something. Your art conveys it.

  8. Such lovely sketches.
