If I Had A Halo... 6x6 Inch Acrylic

I'm humming "If I were a rich man.... yabba dibbi dabba... "  See., the Daily Paintworks is sponsoring a Challenge, a sort of unconventional self portrait challenge.  I was roaming the house, looking for a hat, when I saw my 'halo' (yeah, I have one... don't you?) and decided to paint myself wearing it.  Well, one wing led to another... you get the drift of what happened when I put the halo on!  So here I am, ageless, thinner, and looking... well, like I don't believe the story you're telling me!  How'd this happen?  Too much time alone, I guess :)

I didn't paint over the Mothers' Day weekend, I gave myself the gift of family and friends.  Friday night I attended and Opening of a show in Norwell, MA at the James Library.  A number of my friends were in the show and my husband and I made a night of it.  We bought a gorgeous painting of birch trees by Valerie Vitalli, (and here I'd LOVE to put in a link to her amazing work, but .... we're waiting for that web site to show up!).  I think on Facebook I'll post a picture of it.  ('friend' me if you want to see!)  I think, actually, that artists buy a lot of art.  I know I'd love to fill my house to the gills with fabulous paintings.  They never get 'old', every viewing of them reveals more... and they make you happy!  Win-win-win!

  1. Yea! I'm the first to comment!! You are an angel to all of us so very fitting you painted yourself as one. You are looking at your higher self - the one we see all the time. Might be fun to do an angel painting challenge. Have a wonderful day!

  2. What a sweet angel you are! Although ........ I do see a little bit of a mischievous look. And now I am wondering what this "sweet" angel is planning. :-)

  4. I knew it was you also and it is great, but I would have liked to see just a bit of upturn, not a smile, but perhaps a smirk... lovely, mon amie!

    I buy art... I enjoy art... I need art... It is a feast for the eyes... My husband has become a convert!

    Bises,

  7. So special, why not play an angel! Last year the Darling artists had a Darling Angels exhibition, they are popular at the moment. You made a lovely portrait, I have never dared do a self portrait!
