Last June my art buddies, Thomas, Terry, Brian, and I met in Minnesota for a week of art. Brian had suggested sometime last year that we should do a book of self-portraits. Terry surprised us with journals and the suggestion that this year we create a self-portrait for each of us to put in the journals. I finally got mine done last week and mailed them off to the boys. Mine are my interpretation of a Chuck Close portrait. I had designed a lesson for this type of portrait that I eventually taught at the Schack Art Center in November to a group of teachers. So it was perfect for creating and sending to Brian, Thomas, and Terry. Our journals have room for six portraits. I will have to get busy to fill the two extra spots!
