Who Else is Afraid To Be Seen Crying? (Ghost Tears Girl Drawing Part 1)

I was just chatting with a friend about this---being too afraid to let anyone see you cry.  He said, it's more acceptable for women to cry than men.  I agreed, but that still doesn't change the fact that I don't want anyone to see my tears.  I don't want them to see me in a moment when my emotions literally overflow out of me.

This new drawing, "Ghost Tears Girl" is about those tears you won't let fall.  They haunt you until you can let them go.  I know because I've carried a lot of tears inside of me, believing it's better to show a brave face even if I'm dying inside.

In the next few weeks, I'll be working on this haunted drawing.  Little by little, I'll get it just right.  I think it's off to a good start.  The girl's emotion is so powerful just as a sketch, but just wait.  It will get better and better as I add the ball point pen ink and finally the colored pencils.  I'll keep you posted.  In the meantime, if  you get an urge to see more of my artwork, click here.
