I didn’t want to stop drawing today, my motivation is relentless and I feel that I have unlimited energy to finish this self portrait.

This self portrait is my attempt to communicate the energy that I currently feel toward art making. I can’t wait to start in with the charcoal tomorrow morning as I plan to infuse this drawing with the energy I feel through energetic strokes.

  1. You are the most committed and relentlessly passionate person I’ve met. Your art shows this daily, but I hope others recognize your dedication. I think you will rock it. Just do what you can to line up your target and let the arrow fly.
