Love, a drawing challenge

I am joining Rachel at Hi Happy Panda with her weekly drawing challenges to not only make me motivated to draw more but, to also give me an opportunity to visit some of my old art work.

Since I decided to join late in the week I am entering an older drawing due to the lack of time to produce a new one.

This drawing was done in January of 2007 on paper with a color pencil.

Sometimes with LOVE comes heart ache and after a few years of being divorced from a previous marriage, I was finally ready to “Let it go”.

I based this drawing on a black and white photo that my friend Jackie took of me at her apartment in NYC back in 1994-95.

I think it’s by far one of my favorite self portraits.
