Well. Self portraits are mighty hard. Especially the noses. And Rich says “She looks older than you.” Perhaps. But you have to keep on drawing faces in order to have any eventual success at it. Why does everything have to require so much practice? Anyhow, I do like the butterflies which I cut from a fancy cocktail napkin. And the bright blue one from a magazine. They give your eye something pretty to rest on. And the produce bag netting has a softening effect. I saw a line somewhere (don’t know the source of the quote), “Leave everyone wondering which is more interesting, you or your hat.” In this case, it’s definitely the hat!
I love it and the portrait looks just like you.
Thanks Bob, you are sweet.
I give up on commenting on the blog….much too complicating for me. But I do enjoy your posts. This is interesting. Brave of you to try self portrait. Very creative use of materials. You continue to inspire me. I am signed up for painting class. Maybe I can get more creative.
Thanks, Barb. I truly appreciate all your supportive comments–you are so encouraging! The self portrait…Tuyen says I’m hiding behind the butterflies and veil but I am the TIMID artist after all. I do want to work more on portraits. And I look forward to hearing about your class!
