Redo ...

I came across this whimsical self-portrait I did when I was looking for something else - it's from an online class I took back in October 2010.

I've been working on an updated version since Monday. Kind of reminds me of Persis Khambatta - who played the bald chick in the first Star Trek movie - only her head wasn't wonky.
I think they both look more like Anne Hathaway than me, but it's a fun mixed-media project. There are layers of gesso, acrylic paint, watercolor paint, water soluble crayons, graphite pencil and colored pencil. While I was waiting for layers to dry, I carved the bubble stamp for more texture and then decided what it needed was butterflies. 
Not my usual style, but definitely entertaining.
