Self 2

A critical stage in the development of a portrait...the eyes. (or eye in this case)..if I get this bit wrong then it's time to start again. fortunately in this case, things seem to be progressing OK. At this stage it's very intense, doing hours of work with very little to show for it. It's a case of carefully putting dots into spaces being careful not to overlap them! this plus the fact that I need sleep more than ever.

If only I could be free to be the kind of person I want to be!..this piece seems to convey much of what I am about these days. Margret has summed it up fairly well in her comment for the first entry in this work. I am guarded and defensive. I will only reveal the real me to those closest to me....currently there is no one close to me!
