In the meantime draw yourself

There are so many art possibilities that I'm excited about right now.
Contests, art shows, ideas swimming, and popping in my head.  That's
just on three cups of coffee.  

Right now everything is a work in progress, so what can I show you?
I did this self portrait yesterday.  It does not really look like me, but
that's art right? It was fun to do, and made me happy.  In my book
that counts. 

Have a loving your life day.

I love this drawing and can certainly see the resemblance ❣️. I keep trying to both draw and paint a self portrait from life using a mirror. It is so difficult!!!

Hi Evelyn,

Thank you so much. For me the issue is the shock of seeing
how I look. No! But then I carry on if I need a drawing, and
I'm the only model available.
