WORKING FROM LIFE
Once Mike made the decision to say no
to TV and yes to books in 1978, he
spent much of his spare time practicing
working from life as well. He sketched,
drew, and painted portraits of friends
and neighbors and family members who
would pose for him. He also during that
same period completed several self
portrait
s, such as the one pictured here
to the right,
 that enabled him to further
experiment creatively with various poses
and lighting and mood and compositions.
