A Self Portrait

I did this from a photo that my young friend took of me when we were in Manitoba, hiking in the wet snow.  I couldn't believe my ugly expression, and just felt it had to be painted.  Hah, I'm weird that way. :D :D.  I had just picked myself up after having stepped through the crust up to my hip.

It's on taped together construction paper, with acrylics mixed with poster paint over pastels.

  1. Charlotte, I've only seen one photograph of you and this Charlotte looks very different indeed! Hugely impactful though and super use of all those materials.
