Some nights it is just not going to happen. Your mind is too active or it is flooded with memories. Now that I am retired I really don’t need to fuss about not falling asleep. Last night was one of those nights. I love doing Selfies. I am half way through my third Selfie sketchbook. I have a large mirror next to my computer. A little daunting first thing in the morning or in the middle of the night but it works for the majority of my self portraits. I like that I sit still! Earlier in the day I sat in the coffee shop and tried to capture people getting a snack and some coffee to go. I wanted to scream out “stand still”. So my struggle continues sketching people out and about!
Here are two “Selfies” drawn at 2 a.m. The first one is from a photo when I was at work. I worked in a fire district and was the photographer at their Burn to Learn events. The second one is from looking into the mirror at 2 a.m. I had combed my hair and I added the ear-rings for the fun of it.
