They say talking to oneself is a sign of insanity but, I'll bet, we all do it occasionally. Now if we'd only ask ourselves the important question or questions, we might know ourselves a lot better than we do. And if we were to know ourselves better then we'd probably know and/or understand our fellow humans better. A greater understand overall couldn't be a bad thing. Even a 20 percent decline in knee-jerk reactionaries would be a great advance forward, in my opinion. This is a 6 by 4.5 inches gel pen with color pencil drawing on medium bond acid-free paper. Original Jones Art, still asking himself the difficult questions, in northwest Austin, Texas.

Goodone Mr.Jones ive done that many of times Ive always your the only one who cancome up with the right answer Beautiful done love the overall concept drawing :D I talk to myself too but that another story lol have a great beauty day Charles

Artist Reply: I guess asking one's self something depends on a couple of variables, Ray. If one is a chronic liar, then whatever you say to yourself---go with the opposite answer. Hope you are having a beautiful day, Ray. Though, truthfully, I could use a couple of 'beauty' days also. My mirror would thank me, I'm sure. :)

It's always a great pleasure and rich experience to be able to talk to the one you treat highly, However, I still haven't had answered all those questions asked myself, so you're not alone. Good black-and-white solution again!

Artist Reply: Thanks, Nikolay! I just thought I'd do something slightly different and quicker. Believe it or not, those color drawings take some time to reach maturity. And there is a warm grey over those question marks for effect. Hope all is well with the Semyonov household today. :)

YOU MAY BE IN TEXAS BUT YOUR GUY LOOKS LIKE HE'S CAUGHT IN A SNOW BLIZZARD. NO COLOR. YES, I TALK TO MYSELF. I NEED EXPERT ADVICE AT TIMES. :):):)

Artist Reply: Well, I think old folks are a lot like the proverbial 2-year-old, Joanie. Only now he doesn't have his parents to give the question blitz to---only himself, or herself, as the case may be. And yes, there's a blizzard full some days. Hope you are doing great today. :) Regarding color---there's a slight coat of a warm gray over those question marks to boost the image forward a little.
