Portraits in pencil, made in work mostly

Working in IMMA as a mediator/facilitator means that days can be filled with exciting encounters and events, as when running tours and workshops, or can be limited to sitting in a specific spot in the gallery, for eight hours...after a couple of hours of reading, in a public area, the mind struggles to focus. Drawing has rescued me from mental entropy and catatonia , I make small drawings in pencil, the size that's easy to hold in one hand while the other grasps a photo of someone I know, and usually someone I love, which serves as model. It's something, it keeps me artistically alive at a very busy time in life.
