"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."

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.
