Artist's Description

Self-portrait

I folded a rose from a sheet of acetate. I don’t remember how big that was but that does not matter since this is not one of my miniatures.

This rose is the same type folded in my Snow Flower, but this one is folded from a transparent sheet

There were several challenges involved in creating this piece. Folding acetate is different from paper due to different physical properties. The central twist of the rose particularly does not maintain its form forever in acetate; I would have it hold down or take the pic before it untwists itself.

I generally have a hard time with self-portraits, and it was also difficult getting both my eye and the rose in focus; and getting the right crop. In addition my eyes are dark, but I also wanted to get enough light in them for the “faded” effect without over exposing the rose.

Take with an Olympus Fe-340.

Later I also took this using the same rose:
