You can see it in the bloodshot eyes, the poor light that is. Another wonderful self portrait here, William.

Thanks, Elisabeth. It’s amazing what we can see in poor light — even the deadly bullet as it approaches....

William,what deadly bullet? Were you shot? I hate to think of you being hurt,in poor light executed!!

William Michaelian said...

Ah, so nice of you to say. The “deadly bullet” is my way of saying that the word executed has two meanings: first, that I made the drawing in poor light; second that the subject looks like he is about to be executed.
