I thought a lot about drawing whilst I was away in England, three weeks is a long time. When I returned home I was able to continue drawing but this one is the last one made today. Drawing is such a physical and emotional engagement. The reciprocity which exists between the observer and the observed is there to be discovered, the disclosure self being disclosed in turn.
I think that a likeness is often hidden and it has to be encouraged out of itself and in drawing it does not always wear the same face, or rather the face is made as an image of itself, with patience, with determination, with love.
Although the above really was the last of the old year there was this other that preceded it.
A Happy New Year to all.
