Sparkle Shades

This was a project from Freehand III at Mississippi State. The professor who taught the course used silverpoint in his work. He often painted over it with egg tempera. Our project however was simply to draw using silver. Over the last 22 years the silver has tarnished a bit.

At the time I had a fixation with Ray-Ban sunglasses - the kind worn in "Risky Business." The piece was just meant to be surreal.
