“You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.” – Richard Siken
This is one of my original signature series of abstract portraits that I am working on. Usually created in a deep meditative state, with headphones on … just connected to my soul. I used charcoal to create this abstract portrait on paper.
The original artwork & high resolution digital downloads of the artwork are available on Etsy.
