Self Portrait


For whatever reason, I do not prefer mirrors or personal photos; in life-drawing class I always chose the back or the side back of the model. But a self portrait is a time-honored artistic project and the last assignment for the Fiber Art Group I started was a self portrait.

I pulled out the last two self portraits–one clearly my back with my signature and the other my back while holding my great niece. Now this one–is of my hands–poised at my sewing machine which seems to function as part of me.

These are the preliminary photos–I am still working on the actual piece–with a few other projects having bubbled to the top as priority.

If I hadn’t been so lazy as to not retrieve my tripod from my truck, it would have been a much easier project to take these photos—and my photoshop skills are not the best—but they are adequate enough for my purposes.
