There was a lot of time available for both art and thought yesterday. The likeness is good so far although there many details to tweek which will bring it into the realistic graphite drawing realm. There are seemingly endless physical nuances which when placed in correct relation to each other express the tangible essence of this friend. But, who is she? She is the kind one, the sensible and loving one. She is the nurturer and the fearless guardian. She is the one who is capable of moving forward with confidence,trust, hope and purpose. She is artist. She is friend. I took a moment to look up the term “each other” in the dictionary for spelling..hyphen or not. I discovered that the words are held together by meaning. Such is this friendship…we are held together by meaning.
