sumi and walnut ink, line drawing, a couple in love

Abstract Couple I, May 2018

At the beginning of May I completed this line drawing with sumi and walnut inks of a couple in love.  
As I lay down either ink, each one is drawn to the other.

It reminds me of Pablo Neruda's Sonnet XVII.  Below is an excerpt:

I love you without knowing how,
or when, or from where,
I love you simply,
without problems or pride.
I love you in this way
because I don't know
any other way of loving but this,
in which
there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep
it is your eyes that close.

journal pages - figures, doodles and quotes

figure sketch and moon eclipse 

This year's journal is the largest size I've worked in thus far.  Each page measures 9.5 inches in height x 13 inches.  I doodle ideas, document daily happenings, as well as, figure sketch in it.  The only problem with that size is the scanner window is smaller then the journal page.

Enso and quote

I thought it might be daunting to have so much space to fill, but the challenge has been a good one.
Some days I fill the pages with doodles and whatever comes to mind.  Other days, quotes and figures dress the pages.

The sun is shining so I think I'll go for a bicycle ride.
