"I'm All about Color"

Color ......

I'm All About Color (13"x 17")
Color ...... Color is a prime element in my work ...... there is no Color that I don't like ...... my world is full of Color!

This piece began with a picture taken by the camera built into my computer. This point of view seemed appropriate for my self-portrait since my husband claims I spend so much time on the computer. He often sees me peering up over my glasses and the screen to acknowledge his presence ... or interruption.

Go to the "Interpret This" blog for the whole story. This morning is my turn to reveal all about how I interpreted the self-portrait challenge for January. If you haven't read the posts of the members who've already revealed their portraits, scroll down beyond mine to do so. Also, there will be a new reveal every half day through Sunday.

Loved the self-portrait and learning about your process of making it. How fun.

I always imagine that the view of me, peering over my glasses, is the me my quilts see as I work on them.

Your self-portrait is lovely.

Barbara said...

Love how you created the background. What a great self portrait.

Your portrait is wonderful Nellie and you use colour so well. It is a special skill to understand how colours relate and react with one another - it's one I strive for but don't always achieve.

I'm in awe -- portrait and background. Wonderful.

That's a great self portrait Nellie!
I love colour too, but I rarely use blue or green, but I will use both together! Strange.

LOVE the self portrait - and all the colors floating, stirring, spinning about your head!

VERY sorry about that ice! Yuck! We managed to miss that storm and the previous one.
