EDM 56 - Draw a Self Portrait
As much as I hate to admit it, this pretty well looks like what I look like right now. I would have loved to draw me young, svelte, and beautiful, however, that would have been an illusion at best and a lie at worse.
One of the inevitable things in life is that we age, and our bodies change as we age. Some people age better than others. Me, I look younger than my age, but I certainly look matronly now. I joke that I look like a Portuguese mother now. Of course, I am a Portuguese mother!
The colour red goes beautifully with my olive skin tone. It is a colour I enjoy wearing.
The background is organized chaos. That is more or less what my mind and life is like: organized chaos, with little dangler bits to grab a hold of, now and again.
Generally speaking, life is good.
