2" x 2" ink on wooden block
I paint self portraits for many reasons. The most obvious one is that I always have a model available. But I also believe self portraits are very real self reflections. Over the years I have painted over a dozen self portraits. Put together in my journal they tell my story: I love my kids, being a mom is awesome, being a mom is hard work, sometimes I'm sad, I have a chubby butt, and I often need a hug.
I hope you have enjoyed a month of emotional self portraits and I also hope that it inspires you to try some of your own.
