For Love, Not Money! This project began when the model didn't show up. There I was, time set aside to paint, eager to do so, and no inspiring model! So I decided to take a few selfies and do a self portrait. The one I chose to paint is the expression I often wear to focus on a subject, one eye wide open, one closed, and apparently mouth askew.
I enjoyed it so much I asked family and friends for their selfies and was inundated with family pictures. Each one a separate challenge. The lighting was poor, the backgrounds were chaos, the subjects wore sunglasses and smiled showing teeth! Teeth!
