Selfies by Joan Tavolott

I have to apologize because I have been so busy lately and have not posted here very much.
I didn't have time to do a new selfie so I am posting a few old ones I did when I did several sps for a challenge on WetCanvas. I will do a new one, hopefully today. 

These were all done while looking in a mirror, and I do myself from life I notice I am always so serious looking. lol I think the intense concentration does that to me.




Here are two photos of me if anyone wants to use them. I'm smiling in both so you will have to do teeth.

  1. Lovely paintings and drawings, Joan, and lovely picture of you! I think too, that it is the concentration which makes your expression look so serious as you say. It is fun to see how each one of us looks like. Is the real look something like we have had in our imagination of each others? Or something else.

    1. I agree Sirkka that its fun to finally SEE each other. (I hope you have a photo of you here somewhere or will have); That was a bit of the method to my madness of making this optional challenge!

    2. It is fun to actually get to "see" each other. So often you have this picture of what you expect someone to look like and are totally surprised when you finally get to see them.

  2. On they are lovely sketches of you. I am going to give myself a break from here to enter sketches, painting and so forth. . I have so much going as things I started before I came in here on other assignments and commenting others which takes time..

    I will come in and comment to others here . For now I will dismiss myself. I will try to get back in winter time. We also have allot of unpleasantness illness in hubbies family and up coming operation of a sister in-law. who is very,very serious..

    2. Sorry that you have so many things, especially illnesses to keep you away from us. I appreciate when you do comment so it will be nice to see you do that. Hopefully you will be back sketching with us in the winter.

  3. Yes, always serious looking when doing a selfie from a mirror. You are much better looking when you smile, but teeth are troublesome! LOL. I hope you do another one from the smiling photos.

    1. Thanks, Penny. I only did one portrait of someone with their teeth showing, so doing one of my photos of myself will be a challenge. lol

  4. These are wonderful Joan. I do me serious too as I don't smile when looking in the mirror studying my own face. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the opportunity to draw you! Can't wait to give it a go!

    1. Thanks, Lynn and thanks for suggesting that we sketch each other too. You are really in that portrait frame of mind after Sketch Skool.

    1. Thank, Linda. I always thought of selfies as photos we take of ourselves, not self portraits. lol But these are fun!
