Hazel in the Mirror

Here is the last in a series of three drawings of my dear friend Hazel.  It is based on the subject of reflection and in this portrayal we see the clarity in her mirrored image.  At this point in her life, she was in the nursing home and her surroundings had been diminished to a few pieces of furniture in a small room.  The once gracious hostess and teacher never lost her dignity and was always inviting and warm.  I hope to be able to possess such strength and wisdom.

These are two drawings I completed some years ago that were part of a series based upon the theme of reflection.  They are two still life portrayals with the introduction of my mirrored image.  I was applying what I had learned about gradations supporting the contour and allowing the idea of our reflections having an impact upon our sense of identity.

This drawing was part of a series on the subject of reflection.  The drawing could also take on the meaning of light versus dark, positive versus negative, and the notion that each of us reflects on oneself. The surface could be based upon anything; water, reflectivity, or tranquility.
