Nothing Much

I started this sketch to see if I could capture an older face.  I sketched in pencil, then ink, then used acrylic paint.  I’m beginning to really appreciate the flexibility and quick drying time of acrylics — I tend to want to paint quickly, chase after a bright idea and see where it leads.  I was pleased with the result of this.nothing much

The title came to me as I was finishing it up.  I love it when that happens.  I thought this piece would be about the frailty of the aging body, but instead it became about something more like strength.  It comes in many shapes, doesn’t it?
