There were three ghosts in my mind when I started drawing this morning: Father, son and mother ghost.  I imagined them hanging by their own individual strings in such a way that they created a suspended family. 

The drawing that came about from these thoughts was alright.  But it left me wanting to dig deeper and draw from life.  So I made, from a quarter of a Kleenex tissue, a tiny little baby ghost - and then a mother ghost - and then the mother ghost reached out and cradled the baby ghost in her Kleenex arms - and then I drew what you see below.

Mother and Child; graphite on paper; 6" x 5"
