I had no idea how I was going to interpret Jean's challenge
for this month until I saw the photos I took of myself in a
mirror . . . there was just the right combination of personality
and vacancy. I've only tried one self-portrait recently from life
and know what an uncooperative model I am, hence the photos.
I felt less than hopeful beginning it and then found I enjoyed
handling paint in this light-touch way. The paint pretty much
assembled itself into a face and I didn't feel the slightest need
to impose my will onto it. Can't wait to try again tomorrow!
Thank you, Jean . . .
