Self Portrait

Have been dabbling in a bit of paint lately - wanting to step outside of my box and try something new, so for a few weeks I have been just doodling paint onto a canvas. Painting over the top of it, then painting new doodlings. Then one day in a moment of a completely empty house I splashed the black paint across the top of everything and went to town on a self portrait. I love abstract art and have always wished I was clever enough to actually paint an abstract - so this is mine. 

This is me. 

 I used only 3 colors and my fingers to paint with. It means a lot to me and I was quite surprised with how happy I am with the results. I had intended to do some more on it when it dried the next day, not quite happy with a few things, but when my husband saw it he told me not to touch it anymore and said it was great just like it is.  

 A bit dark and gloomy, I know, but it really is how I was feeling and I felt great after doing it. A bit of stress relief I think!!


  1. Paula what can I say except that is amazing...I am in awe of your talent just as you must be,isn't life wonderful we just grow and grow(well some of us lol)...Just wonderful...

  2. I envy anyone who can draw or paint!!! Your painting is wonderful. Three of my children can draw anything they put their mind to but unfortunately I just don't seem to be able to. Thankfully I have other ways to express my creative side.
