This week's daily paintworks challenge was to do a self portrait. Was looking through my "glamour shot" images and was not interested. (I have never gotten a glamour shot, come on) Saw this picture that was taken by a crazy guy wearing a bathing suit bottom that was much smaller than the ones I wear. I was in Hilton Head taking pictures on the beach as a part of Karin Jurick's workshop and this guy came up and took my camera away from me and started taking my picture. I should have painted one of the other shots where I was putting my karate moves on him to get it back. Anyway...kind of fun. Painted this on an 8 x 10" canvas.

Great self portrait. I like the informality of it.ReplyDelete
Have thought of you often since the tornadoes and hoped and prayed you and your family were safe. It must have been agonizing for you to watch and wait to hear from your son. Glad you're able to paint . . . the self-portrait is very fun and your pears are beautiful as always. When you take those figure workshops your gorgeous brushwork will take over and you'll do great!
Love it, Carol! Great story behind the image, too! Hope you're OK after the tornadoes - I'm from Athens, AL originally and live in St. Paul, MN now....ReplyDelete
Looks just like you, Carol! Great job!!! Just finished with Carol Marine. she was fabulous!!!ReplyDelete
So funny! Well, it made for a great painting.ReplyDelete
Love the story along with the painting. What a kick!ReplyDelete
Nice painting. Feels like the beachReplyDelete
What a beautiful self-portrait; one of my favorites ever. Somehow you've captured the spontaneity of the moment (that tip-tilted shoreline behind lends perfectly to that sense). You are a beauty, Carol.ReplyDelete
I can smell the salt air and feel the warmth of the sun! Great job! I'm loving these self portraits!ReplyDelete
Fun and such a wonderful feel of the outdoors and a casual portrait..very niceReplyDelete
Love it, Carol, what a great story!ReplyDelete
It's a terrific portrait and the goofy angle just lends to the fun and the interest. Are you employing techniques you learned at Karin's workshop? I'm going to her HH class this fall and can't wait. Will you be going again?ReplyDelete
Really captured the character of this great dog.ReplyDelete
Terri...loved Karin's workshop and the answer is yes.ReplyDelete
I love the that Douglas's comment ended up here. So funny.
I love this painting of you Carol, it has such a fun energy and a great story to go with it!ReplyDelete
