Ideally, a drawings success isn’t measured by how accurate of a representation is given, but instead the drawing’s ability to train the minds eye to see and be open to feel. It’s an exercise in being present to the feelings of the moment… In this case, drawing my wife is an intentional activity of seeing her and enjoying how seeing her in this way makes me feel. To pour over her contour, the roll of shadows, the study the folds of her ears, her lips, the tilt of her nose, the dimple of her chin, her lovely coaled eyes, her black hair as it falls over her ears…

I enjoy learning to see all the tiny subtle character elements that makes Jess the person that I Love, to recognize and pay tribute to romance and muse.
