deja vu

While doing this drawing, I realized that my sketches show my nostalgia for the past. I see that the features of this woman's face are similar to my mothers, and that my compositions relate to my family's old photographs. It is hard for me to point out exactly what I am trying to capture when I draw from life, but I do get into that moment of flow when my eyes see and my hand follows. My mind wonders about subjects unrelated, and sometimes I don't think at all, its like meditation almost. Drawing keeps me sane, and sometimes makes me completely neurotic but I love it.
