"Burst" Illustration Friday Sept. 14/2012

Inspired by the Illustration Friday word:  "burst" and the quote:
" I was not out to paint beautiful pictures; even painting good pictures was not important to me.  I wanted only to help the truth burst forth"  - Alice Miller

It's been a good while since I was able to make the time to sit with a word and a quote long enough to respond to them properly.  Luckily, this was the week. 

Creating, exploring, how often we feel the blank page blocks us - and yet, even more, having an end in mind when reaching for that paper and pencil will limit what we end up with so much more.

A true idea escapes us, finds its way out into the world, to inspire - or shock - and when it has left, the breeze finds its way in and stirs up long-held beliefs.


  1. Amazing concept and shading - great job!

  2. I love the quote and I love your illustration. So delicate and so much emotion!

  3. Very cool image! I love the quote too. Nice job!

  4. True...I never set out to paint/draw beauty either..ever.Your drawing looks great!

  5. Wow, what a cool and expressive image! Beautiful line work. And great hands!

  6. Thanks, guys. Look forward to your comments, they find their way into my next piece, or the next after that...and after that.

  7. nice play with space, and nice confusion with the eyes and reality.
    welcome back,
    hope it's regular.


So glad you stopped by. I love to hear your thoughts. Drop me a line! Hurrah! Aino
