Self-Portrait Challenge

This challenge has been harder than I expected. How many times can you paint yourself? So far I have had blonde, red, black, brown, a mixture and even map pieces for hair. Short, spikey, long, luxurious, hair of all types, as have been the color of my eyes.  Almost at the end, although I have enjoyed this as far as challenging me to use different methods to create the portraits.  Some you will see, do not even come close to looking like me but so what, as Suzi says, it’s “the intention…………”  Here’s a few.

    how wonderful to see all your self portraits.
    so fun to see that we can start out with an idea and then the process has a spirit of it’s own and who knows what the outcome will be.

    Just love the sketches of yourself, specially the first row! Guess what, my sister and I are signed up for 2012. I will bring my journal next year.
