pencil on bienfang paper

I don’t know what ever possessed me to draw an entire fan (I have cropped some of it off), but alas, I did.

My sister and I used to play a game as a child where one of us would hide our mouth and nose with something and the other would have to guess if we were smiling behind it. This is what I had in mind when making this.

It’s currently in our stairwell:

Thank you for the gift of your presence.
