This Blog is about Verena Baumann's drawings and illustrations.
I like very much how you've captured your eyes and expression, it is a very frank and thoughtful gaze. And I still love the way you draw your hair, it has a wild and energetic quality that adds such dimension to your portraits. I think I mentioned it before but it feels like an outward expression of your vibrance and life. It's lovely.
Wow. Our artist as Woman seems to have put her pastels away and has found a mirror. A little attention for herself is so nice to see after so much raw sacrifice for the sake of these chalky self-portraits. She seems to have found her looks again, and we and she witness her in three reflected angles. The overall composition is one of vanishing perspective and we watch as she fades into that perspective. Her third manifestation is one of pure smoke. As Spyros has observed, her hair and face are such great expressions of the vibrancy of her life. We thank you Verena for offering us again another candid moment from your daily intensity.
thank you boys, it's so wonderful to read you
