Floating Woman

Drawn two weeks ago, from life.

Pastel and charcoal on 12"x16" pastel paper.

  1. You're back! I'm glad.

    I like the grey--seems right with the facelessness and the floating.

  2. I see tension, but it goes away when I cover up the hands.

  4. I like that feeling of floating, as if on a cloud.

    Good to see that you're back!

  5. At first this looked like a relaxed, passive pose, but then I started to see steely energy in it.

  6. Welcome back!

    This is like a dream, partly delineated and partly vague.

    Woman Dreaming below is wonderful too.

  7. AH is right about the hands. Hmmm. I don't see dreamy though. To me I feel like she's being born out of an egg. Is that crazy?

  8. Thanks, all.

    AH, now that you've said it, I definitely feel the tension in the hands.

    Margaret, I like the "born out of an egg."

  10. I so love your paintings and drawings!
    Also this picture is gorgeous.
    I've had art on higher level in my school and am so fascinated by your talent.

  12. Floating woman is certainly a positive take on it. But I can easily see it taking a negative spin, especially with the dark "colors". Very Good, JS.

  13. Shades of grey - when they're well done you can project anything onto them. Love this one, J.

  16. Oh, it's been a long time. Well, maybe not that long, just seems that way. I see your picture, the one above my dining table, every day. Trust you're well.

  17. Thanks, AH. I have taken a prolonged break from blogging. I plan to start posting again soon, and, meanwhile, will start catching up on the blogs I follow.

  18. I have been wondering about you - how you are - what you are up to.

    I have some friends from here visiting Austin the month of November. Sigh. It makes me homesick, especially since November is such a nice month there.

  19. Hi, Shanna and Laura. I miss you, too. I've been on what's developed into an extended break from blogging. I've been drawing, and hope to start blogging again, soon.
