I just got back from Florida... I'm continuing with the theme of gentler renderings in Mary's mole... she also suggested that anyone who felt compelled could try a self portrait, so I did.
I've been having a really hard time personally lately (difficult trip), and I found that doing a self portrait really alleviated some of the pain. Amazing. I've only done one other in my life... I think I will keep in mind that they seem to be good for my brain.
