Day #19 of What’s in My Drawers.
Monotype with pastel on paper
13″ x 15″
Most artists have done a self portrait or two in their career. Many have used props or costumer to try on a new persona or catch a certain mood.
Our friend Rembrandt is known to have done quite a few of those.
As the daughter of a milliner I have spent countless hours trying on the fabulous hats in my Dad’s Nobby Shoppes. It seems that we couldn’t take a family day trip without stopping at one of his stores to either pick up or drop off merchandise for one of his customers.
In this monotype I am trying on a festive creation as I am navigating my new life after my divorce.
Where in your work do you see your roots?
