Blog Contest Giveaway Self Portrait

Well, I just can't be outdone by Ms. Stacey who is fantabulistic. So, I am going to host a blog give-away too. Here is the deal. The objective of this contest is to stimulate ideas about who you are. Who are you? What is the definition of "you?"

  • In order to demonstrate or define "you" first post a link to this site and
  • send me a link of to the "self portrait" of you.
This can be a drawing, a photo, some type of poem, prose or anything that you feel defines you. This contest will be hosted by me until August 31. On that day, I will choose my favorite self-portrait. I am looking for unique, fearless, and bold entries. You may enter more than once.

This particular piece was created with colored pencils and pens and water colors on a 9X12 piece of water color canvas. It has a black matte on it that gives it a nice touch. Though this lady does not look like me, it is very symbolic of the real me. I love my naps...I love the dress because it reminds me of Klimt art and I love the colors. So, good luck and spread the word. Sept 1st a winner will be announced!
