Portrait January 2017, Day 6: Jim

The response from my friends on Facebook to my call for reference was amazing and motivated me a lot that year. That doesn’t mean I didn’t still struggle from time to time, as the comments to this one indicate.

Day 6:

What I wrote about this at the time:

Based on an email submission from my friend Jim from California. I don’t know if shading this image to death made it any better, but it sure made it more interesting to me!

I’m struggling with motivation a bit. Last year, I made it to seven entries, and I’m pretty sure I’ll beat that number. But I am starting to feel like I’m doing the same thing over and over again, and wondering if I’m learning anything (realistic answer: Yes. Repetition is part of learning). So I may take a short break after the next one, or shake things up by switching to different media.
