LOOK AT ME

Self Portrait in Charcoal.
This painting was also juried into the York Art Association's Juried Exhibit.
Doesn't look exactly like me, looks more like my cousin Juanita.
It's the first time I used this process for charcoal - covered the paper with charcoal dust,
then removed the highlighted areas with a kneaded eraser,
and added charcoal for the darker areas.

My Newest Patron


This is my newest and youngest PATRON of the ARTS,
not KC the dog, but, Caleb, the baby.
please note: this is not my baby, my baby is over 30, this is her girl friend's new born.
I wish I were that young again!!!
