Self Portrait II

Subtractive method of imagery using charcoal and an eraser. I found it difficult to do my own self-portrait because what I saw in the mirror did not match up with the more youthful self I feel myself being and projecting. This was an exercise in erasing layers of denial about my own aging along with the charcoal to reveal my true self…!

10.25" x 13.5" image on charcoal on paper, matted to fit a 16" x 20" frame.

Price: $195 (with mat only), $225 (with mat and frame), plus taxes and shipping.
