Only those who died young
watercolor and graphite on paper. 5" x 7". 2006.
excerpt from Duino Elegies: The Tenth Elegy By Rainier Maria Rilke
"Only those who died young, in their first state of timeless serenity, while they are being weaned, follow her lovingly. She waits for girls and befriends them. Gently she shows them what she is wearing. Pearls of grief and the fine-spun veils of patience.- With youths she walks in silence."
