Get a load of my face!


As part of my "fake it until you make it" plan, I commissioned Justin to do take my portrait in a "portrait of the artist" style. This is just in case someone wants to interview me someday... I'll be ready! I didn't want my picture to be taken with my art supplies or to be posed in front of things I've made. Rather, I wanted to have him make a fun and brightly colored photo because the things I make are generally fun and brightly colored.

I don't think I'm any great beauty but I must admit that I relish any opportunity to have my photo taken. I like the attention and I especially like when Justin takes pictures of me because I can edit the photos to make my blemishes disappear. I really really enjoy using the retouch tool to make my zits magically vanish!

I really like the above photo. Justin screamed something vulgar and I, of course, burst out laughing. I shouldn't encourage this behavior. If anyone (IE my Mom) wants to see a bunch more pictures of my face, they can be found on my Flickr.

I LOVE this picture. It certainly is not the face of someone who has been a little 'off' this past week or so. You are SO photogenic. I don't think I've ever seen a bad picture of you. Well, maybe the one with your face stuck in the net on your flickr :o)

Elise! This is such a great photo! But, you already know that! It makes me happy just to see you so happy. I can't wait to hang out at the BBB together this year! Yay! Bill and Jessica are selling goods there too! With their baby Lincoln! I am hoping the organizers will be kind and put me and Justin smack dab in the middle of all you friends. Then we can sell our goods while passing the baby back and forth. It's nice to have a specific date when I am guaranteed to see you.
