WIP For you my brother 2 (pencils)

By Shinjuchan
“For you, my brother...”
11"x15" Arches paper

Base Sketch. One of the main exhibit pieces @ this year’s “Access The Arts 2019” at the county fair.

I’d actually done a bit over the summer months. Sadly, nothing I sped to share here until now. My apologies for that, but let’s just say that I hadn’t been in the brightest of places in my mind and needed to take care of myself. It’s sadder still that this has been an all too frequent topic of the few journal entries that I manage to make anymore. I’m sorry if that sounds depressing, but I’m being as honest as I can be about the status of my overall health. I spent much of 2019 gaming; roaming across the US with my husband in the big truck just steadying my thoughts and escaping a bit between a handful of jobs. I needed it a lot.

Portrait of my little brother, Micheal and his father, Harry B. Ayers based upon a small 3x3 photograph from when he was 8 in 1989. I laid the original photograph beside the sketch so that you can see the size difference. Harry passed away in 1993 still remaining the love of my mother’s life until her own passing in 2008. To say I miss them both is an understatement and I pray I did him justice.

Completed preliminary sketch in graphite; cir. June 2019
