Mary, Marilyn, and Me





















There's no prayer like desire. Tom Waits

I spent the afternoon in my studio yesterday for the first time in months. I had a strong urge to draw with charcoal and used some portraits by El Greco and some 60's magazine images of Marilyn Monroe as a jumping off place to begin this series of drawings on sex, religion, and desire.
