With This Time

 

"With this time, I have touched every line of your sun-dried skin.

Smudging the dark, and making space for the light.

Watching and waiting, slowly breathing you to life. 

With this time, I have focused on the details,

Zooming in to capture every crease,

Zooming out to gain perspective. 

Always grounded by your steady presence,

Each day looking upon your changing face with fresh eyes.

With gratitude.

That I have been given this gift of life

And, the time and space to create yours."

 

My most recent drawing, 'With This Time' was created during the Coronavirus #stayathome chapter. When I learned that I could do detailed drawings. By sitting still, focusing, and adopting a slow and steady approach to work. 

 

Listening to African beats, sipping fresh coffee, I was transported to those magical early mornings on safari. The changing colours and earthy smells of the savannah. Using imagination and sensory memories to connect with the subject, a majestic - blissfully Corona unaware - elephant. It became a way to stay grounded at a time when anxiety was rife.
