She looks at him with more than a loving eye. She sees things in him that he obviously doesn't see in himself, and she shows those things to us. We are intimate partners in her adoration, never feeling voyeuristic or inappropriate. This feels natural and right, the way each of us should feel about someone.
The informality of the settings and the casual drawings - often on hotel stationery - give an "of the moment", casual feeling that adds to the intimacy and the mystery. Has she been staring at him as he sleeps? Did she quickly dash off a sketch to remember a certain attitude or expression? This is a truly beautiful collection.
