I’ve stopped denying my past (art)

Graphite portrait drawing of Eric Clapton by Nora Thompson

After years of avoiding the portraits that I drew and painted way back when I was just teaching myself how to make art, I’ve finally decided to embrace them and give them their own pages on my site. The problem was that the people in the portraits were pretty much celebrity-types, and I was sure that would diminish the work.

Not anymore.

After looking back over some of the work, I realized it didn’t matter who the images were of; what mattered was that people saw them. They’ve been in the basement molding away for too long, and it’s time they saw the light of day. So here you go:

The image above is a drawing I started of Eric Clapton that never got finished, and probably never will. But I like him anyway.
