Existence and Mystery



Originally started in charcoal this drawing 
was finished in pencil and just a bit of color was added.
The elements in the drawing came sometimes quickly,
 sometimes slowly as these things happen in the psyche.

Sense and order are not always, and some would say 
never a part of existence, yet at the same time
it is all perfect just as it is.


This drawing honors all that is mysterious and
cannot be explained.

  1. So many stories from one string of things drawn in a landscape...

  2. Good words in a good drawing. The words make a connection with the yellow color, but also with the 'empty' white of the paper.
    ... is this a friend of Emma? A brand new friend?? :))

  3. Thank you for seeing this Valerianna,

    Still Linde-The cat at the top is a mystery cat, one that was watching us when we traveled last week. Very beautiful and cautious.

    oh ramona, yes YES to this. this is what i am feeling so much. the need to honor the process. period. what unfolds from there is satisfying on a deep level. and it is visually satisfying as well. this piece embodies all of that.

  5. Ramona - you have captured 'mysterious' perfectly in this - love the ladder coming from underground, the expression on the girl, the bird, the hint of color -- I just want to crawl in the drawing and explore . . .

  6. You speak to me directly, Ramona. I recognize some parts of my life here as a symbol for my own situation.

    Please can you explain to me the little object hidden half in the earth in the middle of the drawing beneath the tree?

  7. Yes Dori, The object coming from under the ground is a ladder, in German, a leiter. This is used to bring ones self higher, upwards.

  8. For me this ladder is very inviting to go downward, into the earth, into the soul, into a warm darkness where all is connected, where all are one.

  9. Wonderful, Ramona, I like it very much!

    P.S. The keyword here is "latess" , that means ladder or leiter :)
