Taking Care

Taking Care
Copyright 2013 Addie Hirschten
Acrylic on Cardboard

No matter how careful you are, there's going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn't experience it all. There's that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should've been paying attention.  Well, get used to that feeling. That's how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice.
-Chuck Palahniuk 

This is a quickly done sketch of a rather ghostly ethereal woman.  It is on plain old cardboard so the acidic quality of the paper will probably make it deteriorate fast.  Sometimes it is liberating to think that it won't last.  I can be less careful. Then again this whole thing is just going to rot away.  So what was the point?  It is a sketch.  It can lead to something else, something of higher quality.

Be of love a little more careful than of anything.
-E.E. Cummings
