I Will Go


I am still drawing faces in the composition journal. I really don't mind the lines. I love lines---why do I love lines? I guess lines are a comfort zone for me. I don't really know why. There must be some deep seated thing going on in me. Maybe it's just something to hold on to. Of course I like drawing faces without the lines too on a canvas but it's not as comfortable as in my composition journal.
"I will go" is from the book of Ruth. I love that sweet story of Ruth and Boaz.

Martha,
She is beautiful and you can even make lines running through your drawn faces look good! :0)
Great meaning behind it too with the Ruth scripture!
Have a super week!
Hugs,Patti

I really like all of your girls Martha and they look younger. I know that's what you were going for a few months ago. I like the lines on the face too--you can maybe put a word on her face?

I adore lines, which is probably why I chose "Lines and Grids" for my sketchbook project. Are you doing the sketchbook project 2011 Martha? I love your girl too!

love the eyes. Your girls always have the most expressive eyes. Your love of lines, maybe it expresses the need for pattern, grid work that gives a feeling of being grounded...whatever the reason it's an interesting observation.
