So, its still raining…and I extended my ‘exercise’ by working on more collage pieces today.
I guess its true that most of the art we make is a self-portrait in some sense of the word …but I just never really thought about it in the literal sense so much.
This piece was inspired by a model in a catalog who looks nothing at all like me – but three people have already asked me if this is a picture of me.
Isn’t that interesting.
Making the model resemble me in some way was definitely not my intention, nor could I have pulled it off even if it had been, I’m not a realist painter – I’m barely a painter at all! And anyway… this collage uses the actual image of the model – I only embellished it a bit!
I guess the expression of some part of me must have come through somehow.
Art is so cool.
