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!
