Baba's Life Drawing Class



Baba is modelling for life drawing classes. Consider:
"All that is left of her natural beauty.
Her skin is intact,
Her bones are as they are
No need of paint and powder
She is as she is no more, or less.
How marvellous."
Ikkyu (fifteenth century)

Life does make you wonder sometimes, that is true.

Wonderful drawing! Don't stop. The most interesting art often is tied with layers of meaning. I love the quote too.

There are many meanings tucked in this semi self portraiture Luna and the verse really spoke to me.
