i trust what rises up from my heart








((hope you all had a lovely thanksgiving week. xox))
i created this as a kiss between a painting + a drawing/thus refrained from adding color.

Love how the curly-cue hairdo looks as if it's about to topple over, and the figure's position makes me think of "balance."
