Four self-portraits - from a 1979 Journal.
Its hard to look at yourself closely and render it to the paper. 
This is a freer blind contour drawing that, while not looking exactly like me, has more life and mood than the careful drawings which are striving for a likeness.

By this time I am warmed up and getting to a more animated version of myself.

I was 43 when I   
drew these sketches.

Probably this last one is the true frazzled me.

I am grateful to find these drawings. They remind me of a lot more about myself than photographs would.

I loved the sketches! You are right, they do say a lot more about you than photos do. What a multi-talented person you are!
