Self Portrait With Butterflies And Veil

scan0084Well. 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!
