A Little Bird Told Me (Self-Portrait with Celtic Hair)

Lynnette Shelley

Ambler, United States

Artist's Description


Ming Myaskovsky Fine Art Award
for Celtic Mythical
SoJie 5, July 2010

July 2010 Juried Invitational Exhibition

Drew this for a self-portrait contest. This is also my first ever self-portrait, beyond a couple of exercises in art classes when I was younger. I obviously took some liberties here ;)

I didn’t get some aspects of the portrait quite right (the nose and the chin are not quite right for example, and I have a much paler skin tone), but this is perhaps how I would look in another reality ;)

Mixed media on heavy textured purple watercolor paper (Canson). Original measures 19 × 12.5″
