My Ten Favorite Self Portraits

My Ten Favorite Self Portraits
At least, for today.


Day 220: Teiresias
Day 220: Teiresias

Teiresias is my favorite self portrait. It was taken on a day when I was exhausted, over halfway through my 365 Days project and starting to lose steam. I had no idea what I wanted to do that day except maybe go to sleep.

Usually, on days when I'm not feeling creative, I end up doing something that is less than stellar. This day though, with some help from the Creative Director (my husband) I forged through and took the photo. I knew I wanted to do something without my head, and I had this image of a figure floating in space. Jared helped me to drape the cloth just right and I took the photo. I am so happy with the result. This photo, the only hard copy of it I will ever create, is owned by Tee Morris, one of my greatest Patrons. I'm so happy it lives with him.

This is a photo that grew on me. The more I look at it, the more I like it. Jared made the prop in this photo, a prop that was a part of a magnificent costume, a photo, and now, may have a part in a play. Sometimes things you create start to have lives of their own.
