“A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.” Paul Klee

Drawn On Love

He looked at her long
recognising the stirrings deep within,
he took his pastels and stroked the
paper gently eliciting form as felt,
but something lacked, and his 
movements became more urgent,
frustrated with his chalky lines
he stopped and reached out,
touching her.

    What a fabulous quote from Klee! LOVE it.
    I hope the artist had permission from the muse. If so, this has a pleasing, slow sensuality to it.

  2. Reaching out doesn’t seem very polite, but sometimes you need that hands on experience.

  3. I love crossing from virtual into the real here. Chalk on a canvas, words on a screen, can only take you so far.

  4. A story as old as visual art, I think…

  5. Interesting artistic dilemma: to capture the model’s essense on the canvas or to possess her physically?
