Faces or what

 Click image to enlarge!

This is a self portrait I drew when I was 14 years old. I can still remember sitting in front of a mirror to create it. Was not easy to do. Finding the right angle every time I looked into the mirror. 
I was probably not very pleased with it as I can read a note in the upper corner. 
It sais: Refinement by Marie. 
Marie was my mother. So she adjusted it a bit. 💖


Acrylics on paper 36x24cm
Last day of  having access to the the storage room in the Art Gallery I created this one. When fixing the image in Photoshop I noticed the siluette. If noone else, at least Andrea will see it.

  1. IN the blue painting, are you talking about the face on the lower right- exiting the page, apparently screaming? Once my eye found it, it is always what I see now.

  2. Wow, what a fantastic self portrait. It is very different from your modern style, and I am glad you shared it Monica. Happy weekend. Hope it is cool where you are. hugs-Erika

  3. Luv the portrait. The blue yellow abstract isenchanting.
    Happy you linked to Art For Fun Friday


  4. Ohhh Monica that face is excellent and I do see the silhouette in the second one. Thank you for joining in Friday Face Off.

  5. Monica your self-portrait is wonderful!!! I see you wore a lovely hat too! ☺

  6. Your self portrait at age 14 foretells you talent and your future role in the art world. And, LOL, yes, I see the silhouette and I also see an angry man's face and a frog ... do you?

  7. I do like the self portrait.

    All the best Jan
