”Self Portrait” 10"x8" graphite pencil on canvas
by Lee Gordon Seebach

I did this drawing in the late 70s from of photo of me painting in a forest near Chicago. I originally intended to paint in oil over this drawing on canvas but decided that it was complete in itself.

I had been studying the work of Norman Rockwell and how he would make a finished drawing and then paint his illustration over it. In this case, I didn't have the heart to cover my drawing with paint. I'm glad I didn't.
