I'm happy to share a little bit more of a straight-forward self-portrait today. No themes. No morose expression. Egads, no birds!
I was relaxing on the sofa at the end of a long day. A cool breeze crept through the open window. My lady was cuddled up beside me with a book on her lap. What better time to make the day's self-portrait?! So I grabbed an Ebony pencil and my sketchbook and had at it.
The somewhat somber expression on my face betrays my tiredness and the lateness of the hour. But this was one of those drawings where everything clicked, and I knew from the beginning that I would be awfully pleased with the results...
