Best Face Forward by derekered Best Face Forward by derekered
WOW!!!  Thank you sooo much for the Daily Deviation!!  I can't believe it!  This work was very emotional for me...it is a self-portrait and it stemmed from my diagnosis with bipolar.  In fact my whole Facades series was the result of that diagnosis.  Thank you!!

Thank you for all the encouraging feedback, faves, and watches.  :happybounce:

For my College Advanced Drawing course
Part of a series called "Facades"
What face do each of us present to the world?  What are we hiding?
