From the Balcony

Charcoal on paper, 2008

This drawing was part of an experimental series in which I took something that was already there (in this case, a line that I randomly made) and built up a design starting from that original entity.  For this piece, I started by drawing a circular curve that eventually became the head of the girl in the center with her eye closed.  I really enjoyed the spontaneity and strangeness of the composition and the patterns and textures that resulted.
