Invisible Eve 17

Time.  It expands, fills,
and then retreats and chokes.  Where
are those minutes now?

Once I smiled.  The lines
are in my face.  Time turns like
grey hairs.  Minutes.  Years.

I’m finding it useful to do more than one version of these faces.  When I draw the surface, somehow something underneath jumps out at me, and it’s not always the same thing.  A reminder not just for a portrait, but for seeing people in general:  there’s a lot you miss, especially if you are not really paying close attention.

    She looks younger and prettier in the second one. She must have been very beautiful at some point.

    Yes I think you’re right. And you can see the laugh lines. I hope they keep her from despair.
