This Blog is about Verena Baumann's drawings and illustrations.
Oh! I love this one so much. The color of the blue/gray pastel on the mocha paper, to begin with, is quite wonderful. Then there is the very high level of magic as chalk becomes figure becomes drawing becomes figure. What a great sensitive and delicate touch we have here. So feminine and strong. I feel that Verena has unveiled another masterpiece. What pleasure the eye receives from these casual looking smudges and lines. How alive it all is for the eye and how completely manifest is the subject matter, so tender for the heart. This is a sweet, sweet work that is supremely sublime. Thank you, selfless Verena, thank you.
