Howdy, Lorena-

It's either effortless for you to reach into the essence of things, or you
do a fabulous job of disguising complexity,
but no matter. Either way, your talents seem
to include drawing, as well. Marvelous!
Have a great New Year!

irina said...

A Happy New Year, Lorena! The drawing is nice, I could never draw a decent face or tree, anything. I always envied people with a talent for art...

gusgreeper said...

stella said...

May all your daydreams take hold in this year of awakenings! Happy 2006 :)

mermaid said...

Not only is she beautiful, but her thoughts, her words, her pictures, and most of all, her smile:-)

Don't stop daydreaming...

eden said...

Have a great year ahead and this drawing is so so beautiful!

Cocaine Jesus said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

NicoleBraganza said...

whoa! wow! You did that in just one of those high school art classes? Are you pursuing art in any way? I wish I could draw anything like that!

bert moth said...

Very impressive drawing. I kept trying to extract what she was daydreaming - as if it mattered.

Aleksu said...

Excellent drawing!

Daydreaming keeps us sane.

aleksu :: thanks and i agree, lets dream away....

josh :: thanks....yeah i took a picture of the drawing and this faded her nose as well. she looks so pale :)

sirbarrett said...

Ditto cocaine jesus' question. You never cease to surprise and she's so beautiful! I want to sneak up and kiss her but I don't want to interrupt her thought. I love the way she's sitting and her expression. There's a soul in that paper. Always thinking! I know you keep your eyes open. I hope you keep on breathing life into the things you see.

Anil said...

this is unbelievable...I hope you did not stop drawing after that! I LOVE the drawing...

...and oh Happy New Year to you too!

Sue hardy-Dawson said...

really really beautyful but then your photograpy wouldn't be so great if you didn't have an eye for such things. Happy New Year Larena

rhein said...

This drawing is beautiful! Are you still drawing? I hope so. Dreaming and awakening seem like such extremes. Hopefully, you will have a blast this year!

GEL said...

Thank you for sharing this lovely drawing. Daydreaming is music to the soul. Drawing relaxes me...still. Glad to read you'll be taking it up again!

iamnasra said...

moon said...

Lorena,
I love the fragil air of you that came out here, it's is almost as if you let the viewer touch your fragil thoughts and inner delicate exsistance.

Lorena said...

moon :: i love your description ...i would like to think this happened.. you expressed it so beautifully thanks.
