Another Friday post...
and the second one is a pastel self portrait done by looking in the mirror with strong light on one side of my face.
Both of these portraits make us look way younger then we are. My sister says, that's probably because I see us as we were instead of as we are.
What are your thoughts on that? Is my inability to draw the extra chins from my vision problems, or am I subconsciously too vain to include them?. Even at age 57, I have very few wrinkles, so I'm ok with that part. The mirror was about three feet away from me, so maybe I couldn't see the imperfections, or maybe they just don't show up in a "painterly" portrait. Anyway, I wish I looked this good.
Well, that's it for this week. Perhaps I'll have something new next week. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Say a prayer for DH and all the folks that will be attending various events in D.C. this weekend.
Take care and let us hear!
