You get so much humanity and sul in these portraits. I admire your technique and your moral purpose.

Impossibly striking... I'm tempted to relate this to the sensation of drowning...

I longed for something to "grab onto" in terms of drawing. There was nothing...everything blurred, little shading...

I went around and around and added layers and layers. So much scraping and probing...

You always write amazing revelations to me.
I always "see" these through your insights.

Thanks.
