Self Portrait




This was my self portrait created for the ZNE Artists and Poets group. I have included a picture of me as a child in the place of the Sun in this picture. I originally made two self portraits but I am just putting this one up for now. My journey with the Artists and Poets group has been really wonderful . I am meeting some really beautiful women there and I am grateful for the friends I have made!! The words I have included in this portrait are ones that I consider to describe me the best (especially "complex"). Stars are a significant symbol in my life and I decided to include them here. This style varies from my usual art but I like the simplicity of it!

Alli,
I love your self-portrait...you as a woman, you as a child, you as one with the sun....those few words tell me much about you. It is wonderful but never easy to be complex...my friend once said to me...would you rather be a slice of wonder bread? No, but a little less complexity would be less fun but a bit of rest.
Thank you for sharing this...let me know when you post the other one.....
xoxoxo
