I was sure I would have a hard time with this challenge,
since I haven't done a self portrait since I was in school.
I started a painting,
especially the background,
so I cut it out
and hated it more.
I dithered around all week and
by Friday it was time to begin:
and lo and behold!
Of the 21 classes,
one was titled "The Self Portrait Experience"
taught by the amazing Barbara Nigg.
I immediately checked that one out first.
It's the only one I have investigated so far,
but IMHO the $59 fee for 21 classes
by 21 talented teachers seems well worth it!
Click the link...it will take you to Tam's Willowing
site where she has all the information,
since she is one of the teachers. (!!)
So back to the self portrait.
I got some ideas from Barbara's class,
and I rather like the result,
since I am not front and center
in the middle of the page anymore.
Of course I had to screw up my courage and
ask my hubby, "Do you think this looks like me?"
Because he is honest as the day is long,
and won't hesitate to burst my bubble
if my bubble needs to be burst.
As I held my breath, he said,
"You made yourself a bit younger..."
I said, "Of course I did!
Look ~ Jesse standing on top of my head
is 20 years younger!"
He grudgingly admitted that was true,
so I am assuming it does look somewhat like me.
Or he would have burst my bubble.
My head is feeling a bit cluttered now,
so I have to run.
Check out all the amazing entries
at Inspiration Avenue later on Sunday.
I have seen most of them, so I can tell you
they are quite wonderful!
