Love


walk with me
tell me your thoughts and feelings
I will not only listen
I will ponder
explore and consider
what animates you
what springs forth from your depths
my heart will lean in to support your dreams
and visions
encouraging your passions to rise to the surface
of your breath
your skin
your fingertips
love in a friend

  13. Hi Tammie
    Wow -the poem is so stunning - Oh that we could all have a friend like this! I am loving your art! this one stikes me as being a little bit sad, maybe she is thinking about something with longing. Those eyes are so expressive.

    You are really so very talented my dear. Great job.

  20. Hi Tammie,

  22. what a radiant spirit! you have a gift for drawing expressive faces. looking forward to seeing more.

  23. Oh, I love the tilt of her head! She is gorgeous, all in color! Her shading in her face is wonderful. Your words are equally just as heartwarming.

    ps, I don't know if this will help, but when I scan in a drawing, I use iPhoto to increase the saturation, boost the color, and increase the exposure to regain the stark white of the paper.
