Ellen's Block

Ellen asked us to create a "self portrait" (10 1/2 x 12 1/2) based on a photo... her parameters were very liberal... realistic, abstract, simple, complex etc.  I found this project daunting but fun ... always good to be stretched out of comfort zone, now and then.   Obviously I didn't read her caution about "reversing" one's subject... and as I got further along, I found myself "skipping" a few details (never one to take too long to do a project!)  Anyway, flattering or not, here it is, Ellen... and thank you for the challenge!


  1. Wow, Jody, this is fantastic. I love your eyes! Thanks so much....I am very excited to see this first selfie!

  2. Hm-mmm ... I left a comment here yesterday (or so I thought) but where is it now?
    It said that I felt you captured "her" indeed!
