Ball Of Wool - 12

It's a very sobering exercise drawing myself. I'm finding that I'm equally amazed that my face reveals something of the inside with which I'm very familiar, and saddened by the the appearance of this ageing man who still feels like he's in his early twenties but is the product of ...well, everything that has gone before...

I'm working on my old man hair and my old man head..but have had to stop work early because despite using a 'daylight' bulb in my lamp, I still can't distinguish the the subtle shade in my hair, it's because of my old man eyes..so I'll spend the evening reading I think.

Writing a 'heart on my sleeve ' blog is why I can say what I feel. Today I feel old, weary,frustrated and ...well, that's enough for anyone.I'm doing something I've waited my whole life to do..and right now it's making me miserable. See you tomorrow.

Oh, Niall, you are much too hard on yourself. I see nothing but a handsome man with a genuine personality--who just happens to be an extremely talented artist.

Anonymom...That's very kind of you to say so..I wasn't 'fishing' for complements merely wanting to be honest about the way I feel. As a reader, one could be forgiven for thinking that everything in the world of this artist is as I'd like it..nothing could be further from the truth..it is because I often wrestle with contentious issues that i am able to do what I do with such passion.

Your honesty is one of the very endearing qualities of your blog. Your personality AND your pen bring your work to life!
