This is from a series of portraits done in Bald Hills, Queensland, AUS.  Each portrait is graphite on cold press, measuring 24″x18″.

Cliff, a retired butcher, was my neighbor. A widower, he was the very definition of wistful.  But he was always good for a morning conversation over muffins.  His only companion, a small dog named Prudence, kept watch on the yard whenever Cliff had gone out for the day.
