In my first self-portrait I showed off my professional side. I think that everyone has many different “parts” of themselves that adds up to the whole person. I have more than three sides but I’ll do my best to explain just the three. This second side would be my young, wild, and crazy fun-loving, dancing, artistic side. This part of me is down for anything and free spirited. It’s the side of myself that shows when I get really excited about something because this element of my personality is fueled by passion.
Sometimes I’ll pour a glass of wine and start painting. Four hours later I’ll realize that it’s 4 AM and that I’m not at all tired. I have stayed up all night numerous times painting until I have something I sort of like. I usually always find something wrong with the painting but this painting of the eye was one I was actually proud of.
I love going to music festivals. It might be really high school but I have never had a bad time jamming with my friends at one. I always tell myself that “this year is the last year” but the next year rolls around and we assemble a group of people to go once again. There’s something so free-spirited and open minded about the people, the dress, the attitude. There are so many interesting people out there. Plus- the music is great. I would like to go to Coachella at some point in my life.
. Fashion is something that I’ve always enjoyed. It might sound superficial but I do like to look nice. It’s fun to create different outfits, and even design them. I guess this kind of gos with the drawing/painting artistic side but I really enjoy drawing up concept art of different outfits. This part of myself was inherited from my mother. She modeled for a while when she was younger and was planning on going to a design school for fashion before she had kids. I’m guessing my interest in fashion was an inherited trait. She would design and sew a lot of my clothes when I was younger and she still alters anything I need altered. I grew up with fashion so it’s a part of who I am.
