Self-Portrait Backgrounds

Working in the round. Circles are traced using what we had on hand...two different sized bowls and a mostly used roll of tape. These circles were traced in pencil and then designs added in black permanent marker.

Later, watercolor was added.

This is the first phase of the background. Interestingly, the centers of these radiating circles will eventually be hidden by the heads of the self-portraits. Maybe that is sad, but mostly that is so is a hidden feature nestled inside their brains.


  1. I just love the phases in this!

    1. As soon as I pull it together, I will share the latest work on these and wow! It is just so exciting!
