Lately I’ve been working on wedding stuff mostly and I decided after I finished my necklace I needed a break to work on something just for fun.
It’s a self portrait of sorts. I took a picture of myself making the tweaked out stink face. To be honest…most of my paintings start with a picture of me for reference. I’m not trying to paint my own face all the time, but it helps to have a visual of what I think a human face would look like had they just woken up from a two year bender.
Typically I have the words planned out before I do the painting, but with this one I drew her first and then sat and pondered. I couldn’t decide if I was going to use song lyrics, movie quotes or my own words. In the end I went with my own words.
I also decided that she needed a curl on the side of the canvas.
I like her.
Any other artists out there sharing their latest piece? I’d love to see! Leave me a link in the comments!
