Hello World

My name is Shamus Collins. My wife came across a blog entitled "Creative Journey" by an artist named Myrna Wacknov. There is a link on that blog to another blog Myrna has created entitled "Drawn to the Mirror" and this is my point of interest. Myrna has set forth to create 365 days of self portraits that began on Jan. 1st. Well I am starting a little after the first of the year but I am going to make the same goal for myself. This sounds like a fun and inspirational way to force creativity. Let the fun begin.

I think that this one looks a lot like me. Of course, that is the point, but this one captured me a lot better then most of the others. Most importantly, I'm learning. I think with almost every piece I have discovered an effect or detail that I like, or don't. Either way I'm still learning and therefor growing as an artist.

This one has a particularly excellent line quality and nice observation of the hands. Great drawing of the eyes! I am impressed with your progress.
