In My Shadow

"Fit here, in my palm, in my shadow.
Don't be bigger than my idea
of you, don't be more beautiful
than I can accept, don't be more human than I am willing to allow
you to be and be quiet."

Warson Shire

"In My Shadow"
18" x 18"

Here's how it all started:

The under painting that has been incised and embossed with grease pencil.

Mock up sketches.

Contouring with base layers.

Excavating and revealing the layers underneath.
