Inspired by. . . self-portrait

Bonnie's challenge this week is: self-portrait

Like many artists I'm not partial to the "self" part of this particular challenge.

So I went back to the definition of the word for some inspiration.

The main definition of course is: a pictorial representation of a person usually showing the face

I found my inspiration in the third definition: a graphic portrayal in words



Textured with Bonnie's heavenly texture, followed by her soft reflections texture


It should be noted that the only word I contributed  to this image was "impatient."

There are a lot of wonderful pictures hanging in the Gallery this week. Be sure to click over and have a look.


Have a wonder-filled day,

  2. So creative. Thanks for letting us see you through your eye!

  3. this is beautiful!

  4. this is a wonderful self-portrait. it reminded me of a self-portrait project I did 2 years ago for a girls' empowerment camp week. I did photos of them all the first day and they had me DOing feet and arms and shoes and then they put them together in a collage. I had fun DOing one of my own with my name and words for each letter: Curiously Understanding Respectful Responsible Inspired Encourager. That's on my wall even still and I loved how you reminded me to look at it!!

  5. How wonderful......a different take on a portrait. With words that speak to you. Brilliant.

  6. June, this is very unique and creative. I like the fingers in front and the beautiful color. The words add a lot to it. There is just so much going on, it's really fun.

  7. This is lovely. The tones, texture, words and photo all blend together perfectly. I love seeing you through your eyes (or eye).

  8. This is very creative and beautiful!
