I had the great opportunity to study under the fantastic artist, Paul Davis, at the University of Utah. His classes were the hardest of all my college experience. I was so overwhelmed most of the time. Now, many years later, I am grateful for his strict teaching methods.
This was one of his assignments: we were to go home and draw our self-portrait for our class the next day. I sat in front of the dresser-mounted mirror in the bedroom. You can see from my eyes how intensely I worked. You can see the facial structure and planes of the face.
Yes, I was bald then. I had dark hair though. Now I’m still bald, but have almost white hair and a full white beard.
