Announcement!!

I'm so excited!! I have started another blog and I hope all of my friends out there will take a look and then jump in and email me your work. The title is Artists Paint Themselves. The purpose is to share self portraits, not just ones done as mature artists, but some showing how we got to where we are. Please check it out.

And speaking of......I've begun another self portrait. This is how far I've gotten. It seems like I'm jumping all over the place on this one. This is all colored pencils. I'd love some feedback.

I really like the way this is going. Wonderful composition. The look of surprise is so appealing!

The new blog you set up for Self-Portrait is a stoke of genius...and you already have so many really talented participants. I'm toying with the idea, and must admit a bit intimidated. Do you know, I just realized that I've never done a self-portrait? That's kinda weird.

What a fantastic idea for a new blog! (I'm also enjoying this one). I will let all my artist friends know.

By the way, in my book it only takes ONE furry feline to make someone a Cat Lady, so with two you are highly qualified!

I love the pose on this one, Deborah! Very fun and lively.

It looks like the hummingbird's beak is getting dangerously close to your eyes!

Watch out! LOL

Can't wait to see how this develops!
