Charcoal on wood panel. This artwork has a bittersweet feeling for me. It was one of the last in the collection of portraits I had been creating for years. After the series of self-portrait headshots, it felt original to draw the whole human form. The expression is a necessary gaze from the artist to the mirror yet as much a reflection of my eagerness to move onto my next body of work.
