This is the first time I painted myself. Honestly I had about thirty minutes before the kids came home and I grabbed an old canvas that had a layer of blue acrylic paint on it – leftover from one of the kids art projects.
I was scrolling through photos on my computer and this one that my daughter Alex took of me came up.
I love the photo – we are in Rome, my skin was being kissed by the warmth of an Italian sunset in July, I have my camera in hand and I was photographing rooftops – a new obsession of mine.
So I did this quick painting. First time I ever painted myself and I really like it.
