Illustration Friday...."Fuel"

The monk and the Flame

Did you fuel the fire,
The restless dance of desire,
Leaving smoldering embers,
Like smoky hollow chambers,
Burning within your heart...
Did you light the lamp
Like a soothing peaceful stream,
  A tranquil diffusing dream,
To make you surrender,
Like a monk,
Saying a silent Prayer....


  1. What a lovely illustration. I really like the way you used color (colored pencil?) in the lamp and flame, and then the delicate line work for the face and scarf (not sure if it's a scarf, but it's very pretty!)

  2. I agree with the above, love your use of color. Beautiful illustration!

  3. Hi,
