The final version of this portrait, I trust.


‘Celebrant’, by Carol Lois Haywood; charcoal on 21 X 26″ light gray drawing paper

This fascinating person from my neighborhood continues to absorb my artmaking. Of course the charcoal medium makes it possible for me to keep revising–and revising I do! Why?

I keep finding my photographed image seems different from what I thought I had done. Also I have gotten conscious of how often a work will be judged by its online image–how rare it is to be seen in person nowadays.
