Third Self Portrait for the group study.

Almost finished this "Created Me" portrait.....will be working on the fabric folds and my face needs some work lol  :)  Haven't finished the second portrait "The Hidden Me" but think I will wrap them both up by this Wednesday.  Am loving this one so far.  May have to create a new blog for acrylics!  Think I am getting addicted for real.

Playing With Mixed Media

This week I played with acrylics and ink, along with some acrylic mediums like glass beads and sand. This self portrait was for the first installment of 3 we will be completing at a church art group I belong to.  This one is the "Obvious Me"...what people see or think of me when they meet me or life on a daily basis.  I am green and brown because my youngest son says these are the two colours he thinks of me as.  The orange is because one of my best friends told me to put it in because I am so incredibly determined ( I had already planned on orange anyway LOLOL...uh...scary huh?).  This is the first *original* acrylic I have ever completed so I am happy with my first personal project in this medium.  In fact, I may be getting addicted.  Da Vinci acrylics were used and I am liking them very much.
