How done is done?

I taught a class recently and during one of the exercises I just wasn't feeling it. Rather than try to force myself to do something that wasn't happening I just let my pencil wander.  I ended up sketching Joe doing his typical Joe face.  We all have days when we feel like this.  It's that expression that announces your total "doneness" with a situation without having to say a word.

I have to admit that it's therapeutic to draw it out.  Paying attention to how Joe might hold his expression and how the light would fall takes your mind off your own pissy attitude.  I really should do this type of stuff more often. . .
