My first thought, I imagine this fairly similar to others’ thoughts, about Portrait is something very formal, and I was nearly clueless considering what I had that would serve this purpose.
And then I started to clear out some more of my little Wee Cottage hideaway places…
Let me say I really REALLY wanted to DO a portrait like a school photo with this wonderful seal Gracie and I met in Monterey in 2009. It just made me feel so silly to consider it.
Anyway, I had a short night’s sleep last night; I mean, I got enough sleep, I was just awake very VERY early this morning. And so I have played a bit more with some actual photos of me. It has been a funny little adventure.
What I have done is a wee series of me smiling, grinning, laughing, 1954-ish, early sixties, and 1986. No fancy footwork, just a little digitalous fiddle-dee-dee…
Then I decided to try a little this-and-that with a couple of pdpa textures but I think it was only Vintage Vellum that lasted.
What really strikes me, having come to The End for Now, is how much fun it was/is to see ME BEing Me, one of those rare and remarkable things I’ve NOT much experience with.
It surprised me how much the same I was at 33, 8, 7, 6, and nearing 2.
And even Now, nearing 60…
Good fun, Bonnie, thanks for the inspiration!!
