Measuring Up, 2019

Created to be a closer representation of who and how I am, this self portrait was painted for the Ruth Borchard Self Portrait Prize 2019.

Lying upside down on my back, head hanging over the edge, losing control of my expression - it was fun. I chose not to paint my arms partly because gravity changes how arms feel and work when painting upside down.
