So I decided I’m finished with this for now. It looks slightly like me–I’ve realized that I’ve always had trouble doing self-portraits. It’s so much easier to create works of other people. Perhaps this is because I assume I know what I look like, and therefore I have trouble getting the details down right. I might return to this at a later time, but for now, I’ve decided I’m done.

  1. i think it is so great – the small details are amazing – eyeliner, lips, strand of hair. i think you look very pensive, which seems to be in keeping with your feelings about doing self-portraits.

  2. Megan, this is really amazing art. What a treat watching your progress, with this self portrait!
    I really love the “Getting Started” image…I know it was unfinished…but there was something about it!!!
    May I link you to my blog?

  3. Remarkable. A most thought-provoking expression on the face….lost in thought, or intense concentration….

    I hope your creativity springs back better than ever…enjoy your break…
