painted faces






here are a couple of self-portraits i have been working on. i have decided to practice painting by doing self-portraits for a year. at least i will always have a subject available - day or night, rain or shine! it has been fun trying different styles and seeing the way i see myself at various times.

when i look at the purses i just had on the blog and the embroidered faces i did last year, i must have a thing for faces...gotta think about that one.

Those are really beautiful.I love how the colors contrast but arent complete opposites.

Nothing like a model who's available 24/7!

Your found object/recycled purses remind me of some face pins I made a few years back. I need to get pictures taken so I can share them with you!
