|Float Gently Down The Stream, graphite sketch, 6" x 4"|
An ideal philosophy, but hardly doable in a world filled with unimaginable grief.
|With Just The Clothes On Their Back, charcoal on canvas board,|
Drawn from a photograph seen in Time magazine. I'm sorry I did not note the
photographer's name; I was too drawn to the harshness of his subject.
|Street Person At the Recycle Plant, charcoal on canvas panel 9" x 12"|
I've come out of the woods, but my heart is still heavy. Charcoal suits my mood and my subject: those who are suffering loss. It's impossible to turn a blind eye, to hide from the truth of the human condition in a landscape or a bouquet of flowers even if the landscape is bleak ad the flowers wilted.
