This graphite drawing was inspired by a photograph of a sculpture found in a graveyard.  I was so touched by her face and body language.  The grace and beauty of this statue filled my eyes.  I felt something unspoken from the hand of the artist who originally carved this beautiful woman--I hope I was able to catch that mystery.

Yes, Beth, you caught the mystery. This is so very beautiful. Where she seems sweetly in repose, in my mind I imagine her stretching into a most wondrous dance and then returning to the pose you drew.

Wow, Beth you continue to amaze me with your gift. This drawing is wonderful, I had to sit and stare at it for a long time. You have captured a moment that I can not find words for. It's beautiful!

I like to think of what Lydia said ... imagining her stretching into a wondrous dance then returning to pose ... beautiful, sissie. Absolutely beautiful.

This is an incredible drawing Beth! Just amazing the movement you have achieved and she is so beautiful!

Thanks for offering to feature my daughter tomorrow...I think that would be fantastic. I'm sure she'd be over the moon!

Do you need any other information about her?
