One of my goals for this year was to do a self portrait, and so I took this opportunity, whilst having a bit of a break from doing art to sell. I must admit it is a little bit confronting as you map each line and contour that has slowly etched itself onto your face. I am long past that age where you stand in front of a mirror for hours, and our loved ones are probably much more familiar with our faces than we are ourselves. I still feel twenty, but doing a self portrait reassures me that I'm definitely not twenty - however, I wouldn't swap those hard earned lines for a smooth face now - they are a part of me and represent a wonderful life for which I'm very grateful!!!!
