Self Portrait

Here's the self portrait that I'm working on in Pamela Allen's "Think Like an Artist" class. A few months ago I decided to stop fighting with my curly hair and trying to make it straight, so my hair is now shorter, and much curlier than I remember it (of course, I've spent most of my life trying to get rid of those curls, and now I've decided to just "deal with it"). Some of the fabrics are from another project that I'll post later, and others are from my stash. The face in the sun (instead of moon), is one of the faces that I cut and decided wouldn't work, but I like it up there. Along with quilting, I've had house plants, on and off, depending on where we've lived, and of course how busy our lives were at the time, and also garden off and on as well, so the hanging plant is a reminder of the plants I've grown, as well as the ones that are sprouting around the house in anticipation of being planted outside.

I just love this piece, Lynn! Thanks for mentioning the face in the sun- I had not noticed that before. This is such a fun workshop!

I'm loving your work that you are doing from Pamela's class. I've gotta take this class next time around.
