Lines are powerful. I’ll never forget the first time I leaned in close to examine a graphite line drawn by Van Gogh. The shimmering dance of the stroke, straight from the master artist’s hand, absolutely enchanted me.
Lines, as my college professor taught, can whisper and shout.
For this painting, I allowed myself to feel; and the emotional currents surged and flowed on to paper. I usually allude to the subject matter of a painting with a description or even through the title, but in this one, the lines carry feelings inexpressible through words.
