The Year Of Drawing Adventurously – Week 51: Selfie

Following the chart to 52 drawings this year.

Wow, I can’t believe the year has almost gone. These final two themes are the same as the first two: a self portrait and a subject of your own choice. Presumably, the idea is to see how well you improved over the course of the year. And maybe to see if you look a little different from the way you did as the year began. The biggest difference in my appearance is that I cut my hair shorter this summer. I copied the photo I used on my Welcome Page. But I’ll leave it to you to decide whether my skills have improved in 50 weeks. Here is my self portrait:

My Life In Ruins

No not literally…

I mentioned I am traveling. It’s Ireland again and it never gets old…. Well, you know what I mean.

I’m on a mission to find as many prehistoric/Neolithic sites as possible, before I join my long dead ancestors in the soil. Thus, I am very behind on my reading and commenting. Nevertheless, I am never happier than when I’m surrounded by 6000 year old monuments. Here are some samples: wedge tomb (2500 BC), ring fort (early Medieval period) and stone fort (400 BC). The final shot is of Ireland’s largest stone circle dating to 4000 BC.
