This is an original pencil drawing on paper of my husband Rob, the Kentucky Colonel.

I drew this from life a while back, can't quite recall the circumstances, but I am fairly certain he was grimacing at the laptop. I always think of a scene from Seinfeld where George is explaining how he "looks busy" at work by looking annoyed. It is a good tip.

When I draw or paint from life - as opposed to when I use photographs - the subject comes out much more cartoonish, which is ironic. My life drawings always have this villainous Aubrey Beardsley character to them.

In college, I double-majored in Drawing and Printmaking. I have abandoned both in favor of painting in recent years. I should draw more.

This drawing is 5" x 8 1/2" on Strathmore premium recycled 400 series sketch paper. It has a little wrikle near the bottom that can probably be flattened out in a press at a frame shop. The paper is "acid free, medium weight (60 lb), lightly textured." It will probably yellow slightly over time, since it is just sketchbook paper.
