Painting Make-Over

This is a self portrait painting i did a while back that i absolutely hated. Maybe I look like that, but i couldn't stand to see it in my studio!

So.......... I painted over parts, ....drew on it, painted out some more, .....drew some more, etc, ala Jesse Reno, and this is what I came up with....

...by the time i was done, only part of my eyes remained!

I took pictures that showed the progression, but since I reloaded my hard drive I can't get my scanner to work....

Wow! Quite a transformation! I LOVE all the additions and the mysterious quality - you're SO talented!!

I don't think the new portrait would enable someone to recognize you to pick you up at the airport; but it does capture your essence. I love it!

The original is a good likeness of your outer self, but the reworked painting is more YOU! I love all of the additions! xo, Fran
