The need to draw is like an itch, sometimes overwhelming and ending up on paper.

Old Couple on Path Train NJ
Drawing of an old couple riding the Path train, this is from one of my old sketchbooks 2007. The subject in this drawing is making eye contact with the viewer. I rarely do this because it makes me feel uneasy that the subject doesn't know I am drawing them. I wanted to capture the old woman's worried expression and her strong grip on her husband's arm. I remember repeating to myself while I was drawing this "Don't loose it, get everything, don't loose it." I think I got it, and I like this drawing very much :)
