"Postures of Love"
How the body moves when love is present
When love is present within a person -- and between people, or creatures, or people and creatures -- it shows.
It shows in how the body bends towards the "other," in the light and connection playing on the faces. The atmosphere of love is a balm to the heart of the one experiencing it. Even viewing a loving image can tickle our innate "mirror neurons" to respond with a similar chord of love, returning us to that place inside where love above all resides.
The drawings you see here are ones I have done over time, as I was moved to capture and make known some of the "postures of love" (as I've come to call this series) -- what the body does when you feel love. As with camera photos* taken on the wing, these drawn snapshots of loving gestures fix themselves in memory, making these fleeting moments last where the soul gets to show its presence.
* Most of these drawings were actually taken from photos.
