i’ll never throw in the towel

you be mona
lisa
i’ll be david

just sit there with a smile
until i throw the towel over my shoulder

this charcoal is dirty
the paint is still wet
this clay is turning to powder
the marble is fighting back

i’m using an old Polaroid
trying out the new digital
i have my head under the black cloth – stand very very still

don’t lose your smile

your
beautiful beautiful
smile

the towel is at my shoulder
and i see your smirk

THAT’S the SHOT

i see the smirk
it’s started in your eyes

ready?

Let’s Begin…..
