Theme - Self Portraits
As someone who has never painted a portrait, I loved the idea. It's an opportunity to do something totally different. After all a self portrait doesn't necessarily have to be a classical painted portrait of myself. I thought of collaging a portrait, writing a poem, doing a mixed media piece about all I hold near and dear. In the end I decided on a little bit of all of this.
Here's my portait in progress. I'm going to add a poem to my silhouette - maybe written in white, not sure.
I'm looking forward to seeing what others have created for their portraits. I am sure it's going to be an interesting exhibition!
