Self Portrait?

I had so much fun with this-while it does not bear my physical likeness exactly, I tried to convey  a sense of frailty and vulnerability as well as strength ...also sadness; a searching and a finding. The best part-I learned so much and used so many mediums-watercolor, acrylics, gesso, shivas, my newly discovered Stabillo, inks....and had a blast! I am learning so much in Misty's class and am embracing my SELF and  a new found freedom of expression.

what a beautiful name.
thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such nice words.
you are a wonderful artist.
i LOVEd that you shared your self portrait and that you mentioned that it doesn.t really resemble the "actual" you.
that.s how i paint too.
i painted my 2 daughters last week at a retreat and it doesn.t look EXACTLY like them...
it.s them to me!
so happy we found each other.
