An interesting portrait find

August 19, 2010

For years Monte stored many of his drawings and smaller pieces in a large cardboard box and a large portfolio case.  After his passing, many photographs Monte had taken over the years were also discovered.   The below photograph was in his possessions and the below pencil drawing within the cardboard box.

Many years ago, for some reason, Monte did a pencil portrait rendition from this photograph of a nephew from Sharyl’s side of the family.

It is not known why Monte created this drawing.   He could have done it for practice, because of the quality of the image captured in the photograph or because he might have been asked to create a portrait.  It is also not known why he chose to keep it in his possession.  Reasons for that may have included it was for practice, that it was never finished or it never met his perfectionist eye.
