This Blog is about Verena Baumann's drawings and illustrations.
I have been away from my computer for a few days and when I return, suddenly there is this series of four images of a woman. Each one has such a deeply feminine power. The figure, the face, and the spirit of each is so magically integrated with the total composition. Is this chalk or is it pure essence of being? It is both! What a deepening miracle this series is... each one with its own particular vibration and charm. I think you are doing the very best of your work these days, Verena... how generous of you to offer to us a quality of work one seldom comes upon these days... these drawings are little masterpieces which can comfortably fit in with centuries of European drawing. Are they self-portraits in a literal sense or only in spirit?
