candy girl real

even though i drew this over a decade ago, i still remember this woman sitting in this chair.  i recall where i sat in the room, how the light landed on her body, how her face told a story i had seen on other models, too.

i’m fascinated to watch a person’s body when their presence is absent.  the woman sat in the room with her whole body, but her psyche, her mind and spirit were elsewhere.  her form was quiet and peaceful, brought alive by the light that danced on her skin.  yet she herself – her real alive awareness and self – was not sitting in the chair with her body when i drew her.

this drawing has an air of simplicity.  it speaks of a quiet yet delightfully colorful moment in which magic occurred – she left without leaving; she broke through the walls surrounding us without making a sound; she traveled freely to some other place our pencils were not invited to go.

i almost feel like i can reach into the drawing to touch her, though i know my hand would clasp around a fistful of empty air.
