The Blush, a drawing with pastel


This is very early drawing of mine in ink and pastel. I think the degree of embarrassment is quite evident. I was thinking of the look of John Lennon with the granny glasses and sixties haircut -check out that hair!

Unfortunately I never matted nor dry-mounted this piece and now there are two creases in the paper that run all the way across it horizontally. It's not enough to create a work - you have figure out how to put it use and preserve it too.

When I was web mistress for the Wed Night Poetry Series I used this for several years on the web listings and emails for their Erotic Exotic Neurotic Valentines event.
