Theme Thursday: "Self Portrait" 5/30/13

Hi there and welcome to my little spot on the web!
 I'm so happy to link up today with 
for her super fun blog hop,

Since today's theme is "self portrait,"
 I could not help but think of these
notable artists and their self portraits:

Two of my favorites:

Van Gogh Self-Portrait

reprinted from Van Gogh Gallery



reprinted from 


My self portrait?
That'd be a stick figure!
So as you can see, I took the easy way out
 today for my themed fun!

Thanks for stopping in today, friends and have a pleasant day!

 Until next time,

~Chris

(awesome resources on van Gogh here, btw!)

  7. Chris,

    You cheated! I would have done the same though because I think we share the same level of artistic talent. Not everyone has to be able to draw. We can just enjoy other people's works. Also, I guess we can draw with words instead of pencils.

    I'd never seen the Norman Rockwell self-portrait before. I like it!

    1. LOL, Sue!!
      YES, I so agree with enjoying others' work! That's me in the art dept.....I'm good in the audience. Ha.

      I love the drawing with words metaphor...
      Isn't that NR paiting just amazing? I love it...so catchy!

      Have a good night, friend ( or day, I should so! It's our tomorrow already, for you...)

  9. Norman Rockwell is my favourite painter! Love this picture. The talent! The detail! The finely-honed sense of humour . . .
