Gallery of Self-Portraits 5

In no particular order, here are five self-portraits in pastel crayon I made over the past few weeks. This endeavor was prompted in part by the fact that I had no laptop for video editing. 

The last time I worked in this medium was about 33 years ago while on tour with the Martha Graham Company. It is great fun to experience the dance of line, color, mass, and composition on the surface of the rectangular page... not so unlike the screen.
