I love looking at other people’s self-portraits, but putting my own up is a real test for me. It makes me feel really vulnerable, much more so than showing my paintings. I guess I am way more critical of my own face than of my own paintings – someday I’d like to get to that […]
Feeling better today.
I love the colours I have on today, and how they all match! I used to be hard on myself for painting with so much colour; I even had that gremlin voice come back a bit today to tell me that I use too much. But mostly, I am pretty accepting that that’s who I […]

Sometimes it might be Wednesday. Or Monday. Whatever day I feel like doing a self-portrait. I’ve never had an issue with drawing or painting myself , but when it comes to photos, they just never seem right, and I wonder why I am even doing it. This should be a good opportunity for me to […]
