Miss Ruby

Going through twenty years of sketchbooks recently, I was amazed at how many cats appeared.  What I love about drawing is the relationship between me and what I’m drawing. It’s as though a stream of energy connects us.  Like the drawing is doing us. That connection and intimacy feels sacred.

I especially like the relationship of the ink brush line and empty space of the paper in this drawing of Miss Ruby.  To me there is both sound and silence, form and emptiness.
