I notice a soft subtle quality to these drawings, like a spirit - and they all resemble each other....could this be a portrait of your muse coming through?

From the beginning, I’ve been calling them self-portraits — not because I know, but for the moods and moments they seem to illustrate. Your explanation here, though, is every bit as sound.

Particularly like this one. Chiaroscuro in grey.
Thanks, William.

William Michaelian said...

Thanks, Peter. It’s kind of strange — when this was done I thought of da Vinci. And so once again I looked him up. Man, he was something; whereas I am merely something else. But I’m here, by golly, and I am to make the best of it!

If this is indeed a self-portrait, William, then you are a God, for I see Zeus~~~

William Michaelian said...

Peter, dag-nab it, there should be an i in am. At least I aimed for one to be there.

Well, Jan, in that case, the After must refer to catching his mistake in spelling.
