This Blog is about Verena Baumann's drawings and illustrations.
It is tremendous fun to look at the previous entry, Frozen Winter Chairs, with its delicate brown lines and yellowish paper and then scroll up to A Second Look at the Chairs. This sudden transition to the harder-edged black and white causes this highly energized sketch to almost burst into flames. The lines are vibrating with mystical life, some secret dance to the sun. All life pushes away from gravity's force and thrusts upward. This for me, Verena, is a vitally realized expression shimmering with spirit. It a haunting work and I thank you again for offering us such plein air joy.
