Self-portrait Monday

Slumped in my favorite corner of the sofa. The original was done in such dim light, I’m barely distinguishable from the sofa – but I liked the picture. It’s me, more than the jazzy stuff (or deer in the headlights). I imagine that I often have this expression on my face…that not-quite-in-the-room look. Possibly not quite in the solar system, truth be told.

I had fun playing with brush strokes and altering the background, lighting it, bumping up the textures. Generally attempting to turn a sow’s ear of an underexposed photograph into a silk purse. Something to do while I should be doing other things - and while I wait for Halifax to become less grey, so that I can bore you all with pictures of my haunts.

I know. I know. I’m not writing. This will have to do for now.
