- In this Charcoal Drawing, "Self Portrait,
circa 1991," a charcoal on paper, I was inspired to make
record of myself in my own hand at the age of thirty six. A lot
of people don't know I can charcoal draw, well here I am, I am
much older now.
- I often use charcoal as an under drawing
in glazed paintings and the like, but I always feel bad about
painting over a nice charcoal drawing and so from time to time
I do a charcoal drawing or portrait. a great charcoal is a stand
alone medium. Here's too black and white for giving something
that all the color and oil never can. I thought that I was terrible
looking as a thirty six old, but what did I know, I now find
that all of youth is inherently beautiful, but I would want to
go through it all again to get here to be fifty three.
