Getting Closer.....

The theme, cover, and end pages are done...now time to work on my three pages and send it to Kerstin on Monday...


I used to draw & paint self portraits all the time as a way to express difficult emotions. Sometimes it makes me feel very uncomfortable, but who better to draw than the one I know best. When I see photos of myself I usually ponder...is that what I really look like?...with self portraits I get to portray the emotional part of who I am, which ultimately makes me look quite different than what the camera captures. So the challenge I give to my fellow Moly X 20 group is to introduce and express themselves though their own self portrait.
