when words become clumsy strangers

And here it is: my first entry in my second book for Moly-X13.
I had this idea of trying to capture that feeling you get when your heart is bursting with all the things you long to say, but they just can't form in your mouth— when that certain person can tie your tongue with their mere presence.

I used a combination of pencil, India ink, acrylics, Prismacolors and white nail polish. I like how the layers of nail polish kind of "fog" out the words— I wanted the words coming out of my heart to look like whispers. There was absolutely no plan in my mind when I started working on it, everything just sort of unfolded. I'm pretty pleased with the result.
