The self portrait.

OMG, this is a difficult thing to do, posting a picture, however changed, of oneself.  And the first ones I posted to the class were like offering up a limb!!!! But anyway, now it is a matter of simply fodder for the lines and shapes.  Such an interesting process, this art-making business.  As I said on the class blog, when you take an art class you bring out so much more than just paint!!! So, anyway, here is my latest take, literally!!  It's about 9 x 12, tissue paper image of moi over a painted background and then with all kinds of painted and stamped tissue paper on top of that.  Whew!
check out Jane's on-line classes.


  1. I love the implications of your self-portrait. implies so many facets of you. I hope to see the "flesh" you sometimes soon.

  2. I really like all of the colors and details of your self-portrait - especially your right eye. And boy do I know what you mean about bringing out more than just paint in art-making!! It can make you feel very vulnerable (me, at least..).
