344 Self Portraits

Twenty One Left to Go!

I was texting with my boyfriend (the very handsome Kurt) earlier today, and I was trying to think of a really good Prince to do today. He suggested Norman Rockwell’s Self portrait. I loved it, and went for it! So thank you Kurt for the lovely idea! I really want the last illustrations to be veeeery nice…as Borat would say! I forgot all the details in this painting. Clips of artwork from¬†Durer, Rembrandt, Picasso, and Van Gogh he is using as reference guides. The glass of wine balanced on the book. A good challenge for a snowy day!

Then I started thinking of self portraits… What self portraits have I done? several in art school…but I have none to share. Maybe another day I will post them with some stories. All I have is this one done about a year ago.

I did this illustration as a gift for Kurt for his birthday.I need to frame it for him eventually. I think I need to re-draw myself…I can do better than that! I had Kurt take a photo of us on his birthday & then I handed the phone back to him telling him the photo looked weird (after I switched the image to the illustration I had done earlier that he knew nothing about) I thought it was pretty funny!
