My self portrait



My friends frequently say they would like to get inside my head and see how I think...and I was wondering what they might see in there...some people get it, some people think my head is full of bright colored noodles...who knows they might be right?? But for better or worse this is it...still need to bead it offf course...how could it not be beaded? The face is made with oilpastels, pigma markers. The exploding colors are some of the silk ribbons I painted earlier this summer...and the little things stuck in my brain are some of my favorite stamped sayings and figures...OH the ribbons are all hand couched...as the beads will be...
