A exploration of mood …

Drawings are just as much a reflection of the artist as there are of the subject. Probably even more so. Reflecting on these drawings I can't help but notice the varied portraits and expressions. If I didn't know it, I would say that this collection reflects several different models. But in fact, it is one single model.

I never really got to know Cathy while she posed. It might be evident in her expressions. But some days her mood and my mood mixed to create some versions of her that looked much younger and much older than her real age. A simple outline of her dark hair, or putting in up or down could change the whole drawing.
