Face-off #8

She swallowed a paracetamol and ibuprofen cocktail to blast her headache and decided she needed something to take her mind off it. Back to the self-portraits. All concerns from yesterday obliterated.. it must have just been cabin fever from lockdown.

Positioning herself in front of the mirror again, she drew and she drew. By the end of the morning she had three more versions of herself. She felt she was getting better at this portraiture lark. After lunch and a spliff, she adjusted her hair for a different look and turned the mirror slightly for a three quarters angle.

    Thanks a lot Drew. It’s slow burn, but that’s kind of deliberate...

    An interesting set of drabbles, but I'm confused as to whether it's finished or not since it's been two months.

    Oh sheet!... I forgot to finish it! Thanks very much for the kick up the Harris, Christopher. I’m now on the case!

    Well, I haven't exactly been Johnny-on-the-spot lately when it comes to drabbling either.

    None of us Drablrs seem to have been. It seems we’ve all been affected by the side effects of the pandemic!
