I just took part in gritty jane's self portrait challenge. A few artists also just did their own rendition of a picture she had up on her fb page. I thought it would be fun to incorporate two other artists that I am friends with into my self portrait. This is me with Janine Parr Heifetz and Gritty Jane . I think we all influence each other and spark each other's creativity. Plus you know I love the three graces!
Somebody commented on my fb page that I captured our inner children. My women often come out very young. I wonder if maybe it is my inner child that is painting? Maybe she is just the one that needs it the most.
It was a lot of fun doing this painting. I felt like they were there with me. Smiling, sipping coffee, encouraging. .....
I use my wedding photos a lot for material - simply because that is what I have the most of in way of recent pictures. This is not really the best photo of me but I liked the stance and the shadows.
