Since art appreciation is personal, I'm going to admit that I'm not crazy about the portraits on that site. But, I love the idea, looked around and found this cool interview with Annie Leibovitz. Creativity leads to creativity.
In keeping with that, I decided to turn this into an exercise. What would a portrait of you look like without you in it? Here are two of my first attempts:
|I collect old typewriters. Because I'm old. And I type.|
|This is a segment from one of my recent collage paintings.|
Interesting way to portray yourself. Most of my portraits don't have people, but they don't have much in the way of description of myself either. Worth playing with.
