Man at the Bottom of the Stairs

I completed this as a demo for a workshop.  My wife liked it and wanted to keep it.  We keep it at the bottom of the staircase, so we tend to call it "Man at the Bottom of the Stairs"

Profile on Antique Paper

Graphite on paper from 1842.  It has a very special feel to it, unlike anything I've worked on.
