Head of a Woman, Allegorical Figure
, S. Myers  Charcoal and Conte on Paper 2013

   This drawing is inspired by several early Botticelli paintings I sat looking at the night before last.

    It was so enjoyable to stare at the book, at those pictures, submerged in their vast world of renewed Spring; to turn the pencil loose and watch it dance over the paper, the sound of Pablo Casals' cello all the time being background - a recording played very softly so as not to wake sleepers in the house.
