Yes, I did it again!

I have carved yet another self-portrait stamp. This time without the glasses. I am having such fun carving the faces. I am just happy that they look human....but surprised --no DELIGHTED that they actually look like me.

Here is number 2:

Stamp Carving

I am in a group that decided to do self-portraits. I couldn't figure out what to do. WELL I got all inspired- took a pic I had of me on the PC and did a "cut-out" in Photoshop Elements.
Then I carved a stamp..yes ***I*** carved a self-portrait stamp.
I used the stamp on ATC sized cardstock and then added sharpie colors. It is quite fun. I feel like I did an amazing job for a first portrait stamp.

I hope to try another self-portrait stamp in the future. And perhaps I will even paint a self-portrait.

Mixed Media

I am working on a mixed media "painting"

I think that it is not finished. Perhaps your input could make a difference. What things do you find distracting, or perhaps just and addition of ??? would make it better. Let me know what you think.
Gene it is.

It now has a name: Metaphysical Continuance and it is entered in an exhibit. (edited to add) The name was later changed back to Jadia Mazan. I just liked this name better and well...I was wishy-washy about it. LOL
