Susan's Hope

This is a picture I did for an old girlfriend. She had a poem she'd written that was really cool, and she had this portrait that she loved, so I combined them. I wrote out the letters first, then I lightened and darkened the lines by hand until the picture was visible. I started this project before we broke up, and finished it just after. I still sent it to her. As I understand it, she still has the original hanging in her house to this day. :)

Paper: a page from my drawing book
Size: Approx 12" x 9"
Medium: #2 pencil (Yup, a regular ol' pencil.)
Time to complete: 16 days

Here are the words:

Searching with a willingness
Feeling exposed
Offering and opening myself unto you
I will give.

Hoping to receive
Finding brilliance within you
Accepting and allowing, come in
I will take.

Remembering the sadness within
Timid and afraid to go forward
Cradle me in your soul's arms
I will follow.

Lead the way, I am watching
Slowly, assurance uncovers my eyes
Veil of darkness evaporating
I will hope.

Intertwined beside you
Inside you
Through time with no end
I will love.

"Hope" by Susan Tschappatt

This is a master piece I like the font you've used everything is well made well done sir :)

Exedor responds:

Ha! Thanks! Actually, the font is just my normal writing, but done neatly. x)

This is awesome! I love the way in which the woman has been erased from the words slightly, gives this piece many meanings!
Keep up the good work :D
