More of Me

It can be a lot of fun trying to depict yourself, whether you are squinting into a mirror or at a photographic image. Yesterday I tried drawing my self from a fifty-year-old black and white photo with disastrous results. My second attempt looks more like me. Goofy still, but I admit that it is me. Love the bangs.

I had also sketched my current self with colored pencil, and this morning added watercolor for a more finished appearance. Hiking through the sands of time can be a scary adventure, but gives a new perspective to the present, don’t you think?
