Here are a couple of self portraits. All through history artists have used themselves as subjects to paint or draw – sometimes to portray or “say” something about themselves, but I think often it’s just because it’s a free and available model – I know that’s the case for me. In the past I’ve dressed-up in something I’d like to paint and had Grady take pictures of me around the yard or sitting at a table reading or drinking tea – just so I would have a figure to paint under the lighting I liked. So, it has nothing to do with being interested in self – but having an available subject :)! Hope you enjoy these! The first one is a sketch I did in less than 5 minutes today!
I love these Sandi—especially the last one. So beautiful!
Thank you so much Annie!
These are so lovely! I love them all! The one in the middle is the one I can best see you in. I can see you that way in my mind’s eye. The way I see you best when I close my eyes and picture you, however, is with a Bible in your lap, eagerly leaning forward, talking to a group of women about the Word.
Oh Kelly – couldn’t get a better compliment than that! Thank you for sharing!!!!
