� Laura Gabel, "CharBoy". Charcoal, 8 x 10. Private collection.
In a departure from her vibrant pastels, this dark, shadowy charcoal portrait highlights the artist's intimate focus on the human face. If a picture is worth a thousand words, what volumes are contained in the expression of this boy? His eyes, his mouth, the lines on his face all suggest an intensity of feeling - is it sadness? curiosity? wonder? fear? In our fast paced, twitter feed culture, we don't often take the time to really look one another in the eye when we communicate. Take this boy home with you and remember the value in face to face knowing of one person to another.
