"Selfie 1-1-16," 19" x 24", acrylics on bristol board, not for sale. NOTE: When I first shared this on Facebook, I got flack because I wasn't smiling/people thought it wasn't flattering. But Glamour Shots wasn't my goal. Yes, I look tired here, and that's because I am. Holidays are emotionally and physically exhausting and I'm owning that outright. In my jammies, with wild hair and my favorite warm scarf. So there.
I spent yesterday making a killer ginormous breakfast for my family. Then we all enjoyed quiet time with our own goals and wishes for this coming year. (Someone also chose to binge on Netflix but I'm not judging)
For me it was both personal and professional - it's important (to me) to understand the difference, although they both inform each other. Part of that involved meditation and a review of my numerous journals, where I discovered a predominance of self portraits. I thought, "Self, what are you trying to tell me?"
In typical OCD fashion, Self told me to work with larger self portraits over the course of the next year (she and I have a lot in common!).
I decided to listen. Wanna join in and do some too?! Please do!!
Here's a couple other thoughts:
Happy New Year and thanks for your interest in my artwork,
