Hi Jennifer, thanks for your wow comment. Its good for ones ego and as the Australian band Skyhooks sang, " Ego is not a dirty word" , great band too. I like your art, I feel like I know the people in your portraits, you really have captured the emotions well, I dont see that very often in portraits, the fella with the hair hanging over his face I really like that one, is that a guilty look on his face or is that the next morning hangover look. It is a very interesting picture.
Hi Jennifer, thank you for your kind comments. Would you believe I am completely self taught. I have been drawing since early childhood but it has only been the last few years when I have been able to devote more time to my art. I am 60 years of age and now retired from work because of ill health so what else was I to do with idle hands except return to my first love of graphite pencil and paper.
