Also, few weeks ago, I just looked out my window and wanted to sketch the tops of trees and houses in the sun. Since mirrors were all around, I signed the sketch, with a self portrait in pencil. After watching a free art class on the Internet, I indulged myself in ink pens and brushes for that medium. I am eager to do some ink drawings with new pens.
Note: I don't usually, or ever, think of what I am trying to communicate in a drawing or a self-portrait. But, in the portrait, the watch must say something about our age.
