2020 04 30 Self-portrait, Graphite

I’ve done more than a few self portraits over the years. Of course, there is one model who is always available and can hold a specific pose. This reminds me a bit of a Benin ivory mask.

I created this self portrait April 30 2020 with graphite on paper. Self portraits need not be pretty or passionate. Sometimes they are just the unvarnished truth.
