Anne's Description: No deep meaning, just a sketch done in a life class.

Well, not everything needs to be motivated by a deeper meaning. I tend to look for deeper meaning most of the time while painting and it is a counteraction. Sometimes you start without an intention for meaning and it shows up on its own regardless. It emerges through paint and form (if it is any good). I am sort of saying this in order to absorb it better myself. It was an advice from a friend.
I agree that things emerge as you paint. And not everything has to be "deep." There is joy in colour and pattern, in line.
A very lovely drawing Anne... a work of art. The deeper meaning is within us all and will always reveal itself. Pursue your formal concerns, that's what drives us on. The feeling, the passion, call it whatever you want, if it's strong enough will always make itself known.
