I heard someone screaming 'not another ballerina today' and it was me. So I thought I would do a little self portrait. This is me - if I were 20 years younger, 100 lbs lighter and had long brown hair. Otherwise it's me. (Pastel on heavy cardboard). PS This is an actual scene I saw one summer. I would like to do several versions of this composition with different figures and with flowers.
This is my new journal about becoming an artist and the people, places, photos, books, money saving coupons, doctor's visits, cartoons, snacks, pets and toys that inspired me along the way. Why? Because I want to be an artist like my father.
