Drawing With Love

The thirty-seventh pen and ink drawing, an 8x10 with pastel and charcoal, depicts the corner of Bergen and Washington Avenue in Brooklyn.

The following quote is from the book To Paint Is To Love Again by Henry Miller:  "To paint is to love again.  It's only when we look with eyes of love that we see as the painter sees.  His is a love, moreover, that is without possessiveness.   What the painter sees he is duty bound to share.  Usually he makes us see and feel what ordinarily we ignore or are immune to."  I've attached the quote to a drawing, but the same principle applies.
