It’s Selfie Day! Self Portrait #18

Teresa reminded me on last month’s selfie day that I’ve been falling behind in my monthly self-portraits.  This is another one based on a Vanessa Bell painting, with commentary by the Magnetic Poetry Oracle.  I did it twice, although I’m not that crazy about either version.  Perhaps I’ve been away from painting for too long.  Or maybe it’s the blue in the eyes.

dreaming
in elaborate languages
asleep
in moon skin
singing
beneath the shadow
of time

    Oh, I love it, Kerfe! I missed your self-portraits! The poem is very lovely, too. And thank *you* for reminding me this month. I don’t know if I’ll manage to get one done tomorrow but I’ll attempt something. 🙂

    Wonderfully Expressionist pictures. These are very powerful, I think. Well done, Kerfe!

    They are Expressionist like. They remind me a bit of Klee, I think?
    I love the poem–to dream in elaborate language with moonlike skin–timeless singing. . . wow!

    Each time you reveal another aspect of yourself in art, I feel the same is happening in how I know you. I love your self-portraits and today the accompanying poem made me just sigh in satisfaction as if we had had a visit.

    I think both are awesome!! 😃 I didn’t notice the blue in the eyes until you mentioned it… and I think it shows emotion. I struggle with self-portraits so I applaud you for doing not one, but two!! Bravo!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
