A Portrait of the Dog

"Portrait of the Dog," colored pencil on paper, approximately 8"x8," 2001, private collection AZ

Continuing the self-reflective colored pencil self-portraits from some years ago.  Here is number 6 of 7.  At the time I drew these I was teaching a class called “Sonoran sketchbook” at a university in Arizona, with a herpetologist by the name of Tom Jones (no, not the singer- this Tom Jones was a wonderful colleague and scientist who could catch rattlesnakes bear handed).  We had gone camping with the students in the Eagle Tale mountains and I had collected some items that I decided to construct this tromp l’oeil drawing out of.  My objective was to represent the side of me that is a little difficult to pin down and closer to the ground.  Blessings-
