Cabinet of Curiosities

ART CURIOSITIES
Self Portrait

My day dream is about being an artist.
I couldn't decide which to show. The only difference is the lighting of the photograph. So, I'm just showing both.
This is Challenge 3 and Bonnie posted the rubric for this one. If you followed along with me yesterday, you saw the very graphic layout that I was curious about trying and driven by my curiosity to paint a self portrait over a photograph. You should try it.

More later,
Sharon

  3. This is incredible Sharon! I've got to say...in looking through your posts the last few days, you've changed! What you have been sharing is SO captivating and so amazing and gorgeous. I'm sure it's always been there but from where I'm sitting (that would be Oregon!), your talent and ability to artistically articulate (does that make sense?) your visions are phenomenal! I think I've mentioned that before but it definitely deserves to be said again! :-)
