I’m either incredibly ego-centric or beginning to emerge from my creative black hole because this is the first Spark assignment (self-portraits) that has “sparked” me. I’m also feeling a bit better – not great, but better – so my eyes are clearer, although a bit “chalky”, in this picture than my last self-portrait.
It’s interesting (at least to me) that I’ve had a migraine-type headache behind one eye and I see it in both pictures. Of course, it could also mean I’m delusional and seeing things that aren’t there.
I smeared this journal page (literally) with acrylic paint. A figure emerged who I “helped out” with pastel chalk. It’s instant gratification since it only takes a few minutes and little thinking.
I prefer doing “spontaneous quickies” (don’t read more into that!) since I don’t have the focus and energy to do anything that takes much thought or time – not that I ever did.
