|Who Is This Guy?|
I really did not pay any attention to the subject of this piece and I was looking at it upside down as well. I was sharing the piece with a student and talking about the fact that Michele had used used teabags in the background and that she had printed an image from a magazine on tissue paper and adhered it to the background. I turned and said, "Michele, did you get this image out of National Geographic?" She replied, "No, it is a photograph that I took of you which I altered in the application Waterlogue."
My mouth must have dropped open because here I thought it was from National Geographic and it was of me! The photo was taken last summer when Michele and I attended an Orly Avineri workshop in Coupeville. In Orly's class we dressed in Middle East garb while doing some contour drawing. We had a good laugh over that one!
I like it a lot!
Michele, to me, seems to have a grounded earthy approach, a comfort level that is always appealing!
Your expression reminds me of "teacher" face, or as they told me when I started teaching kids, 100 years ago, don't smile till Christmas! ;o)
The look on his face, Jacki, when I pointed out the he was the subject was priceless! Such fun. In all fairness, I had seriously altered the image from the original photo. But....he didn't realize it was of himself. Priceless!
Well, I guess we don't see ourselves as others do... He looks the part tho' - like the ornate headgear you've made, Michele.
This IS too funny! How wonderful! I love it!!!
I so love this and i can see your expression now-
