Self-Portraits Painted

Self Portrait

Self-portraits, digital cameras, and the Internet go together like… well, like things that go together. There’s even something called “GPOYW” which stands for Gratuitous Picture Of Yourself Wednesday.

If you remember the post titled Send Me Your Head, this is somewhat similar…

No matter how much I love the world of digital imaging, there’s still something magical about the created-by-hand paintings that people are able to produce. And I love the way something created using digital media is brought back to the old analog media of painting.
