My Mug

1st stage
We have more than 50 talented artists at LibertyTown and one of our rising stars, Jenna Anderson, asked me to sit for her while she took some moody photographs.  She then spent the summer working in her studio and entered this charcoal drawing in the Strictly Fredericksburg show and took a first place award for the Drawing category. I'm not sure if it's a compliment when a lovely young woman says that my face has character, but I'm flattered nonetheless and I think that the results are amazing.

I like it. She's really captured a character.

There's a bit of the old Johnny Leach-like bearded character creeping in there. She's done a great job.
