I am not a split personality I’m a “thrip”. There are three me’s.
Didn’t consciously intend this drawing to be a self-portrait but I believe that any form of creative expression, whether it be visual art, dance, music etc. is reflective of who we are.
My first thought is the middle head is being squished which is reflective of how exhausted I’ve been lately.
On second thought, I wonder if the little head is the glue holding together the other two???
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.
