She Wipes Her Mouth (Proverbs 30 drawing) | Laura Kranz
Select Page

The Proverbs 30 Art Series is a sequence of about 40 small pencil drawings, each based on a small bit of text from the book of Proverbs. All of them use a somewhat surreal technique.

This drawing, She Wipes Her Mouth, is the 30th in the whole set. It’s based on Proverbs 30:20, which says:

This is the way of an adulteress:
she eats and wipes her mouth
and says, “I have done no wrong.”

30 Proverbs 30.20 She Wipes Her Mouth

Drawing specs

Name:               She Wipes Her Mouth
:    5″ x 7″
Materials:        Hard pencil on sketch paper
Series:              The 30th drawing in the Proverbs Art 30 Seriespart of my body of work made in 2016.

Because the materials for this series are so portable, I was able to create this drawing on a flight from Los Angeles to Seattle.

These types of drawings typically start out with some vague wispy lines, and I work those lines into a more polished drawing. It’s a similar process to creating automatic drawings, such as my Organic Form Drawings series. Only in the case of She Wipes Her Mouth and other drawings in the Proverbs 30 series, the subject matter is much more premeditated.
