Self portraits – they make aging fun

 

All those new wrinkles may not be pretty but they sure are interesting.

 

I’m not a big fan of self portraits but I do a lot of them.  They’re a good backup when nobody is available to sit completely still for hours and hours for me.

 

Plus it still beats a landscape — or, zzzzzz….a still life.

 

Here are three self portraits. The one I’m working on, one done in my twenties and a nudie done when I was fifteen. At fifteen I was stacked!  or I didn’t get the whole proportions thing yet….

 

The first image, my favorite, isn’t a self portrait. It’s a drawing my my six year old did of me recently. She’s amazing. If she ever asks, I promise to sit completely still for hours and hours for her.
