Clouds Blow in Over Wright's Lake, Where I Started Out Just an Hour Ago

I should note that I am not considering this a doc-umentary project - sometimes I'm drawing things from previous days and sometimes I'm combining elements from different places. For instance, I've been back from the mountains for two days and the clouds are from a viewpoint on a different trail than I used for the rest of it. And obviously I've been making lots of use of photos recently and not relying on always setting up my mirror en scene.Detail of 'Clouds Blow in Over Wright's Lake, Where I Started Out Just an Hour Ago' contour line self-portrait in ink by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay.

Kyburz Resort Motel
