I think you have captured your mood quite well... a bit of moodiness in the eyes yet a knowing smirk in the mouth..saying how you really feel...Flames might take away from the real flames in your eyes there. Good job ...your putting your mood, thoughts and emotions in your work this way...you know ..you see potraits like this every so often...we are privileged here on GOY to get your feelings going along with it as you are doing this... Thanks...NP

no thank you catfinch i believe your right

4 Feb, 2009

 

ill do a blog when im done if ya want not strictly gardening

4 Feb, 2009

 

Of the process of your self portrait and your feelings as you developed it?
...An artistic gardeners mind on a blog? Perfect...

4 Feb, 2009

 

Sounds like a good blog, doesn't it Cat.
Maybe, NP, put a comment on this thread, please, when you've made the blog, so that we don't miss it. Thanks. :o)

4 Feb, 2009

 

Yes..TT...I think many of us could relate to NP's feelings and emotions. As we garden don't we feel and comfort ouselves through life...? It makes me wonder, what would our own self portraits look like over our lives in our gardens...?

4 Feb, 2009

 

Exactly, Cat ~
That's very observant of you. :o)
We can think back over different gardens where we've worked ~ the emotions and life-changes we were experiencing at those times. The pets which enjoyed each summer with us.....
