This was my favorite DPW Challenge so far, and my favorite painting ever in my entire life.

Not for sale, but you can view it here.
This is based on a photo my husband took of me last summer, with his phone. He's got some kind of app that zombifies your photos. It's actually pretty amazing technology - a free (or maybe 99¢) app that performs the kind of digital effects that IL&M used to have rooms full of computers and programmers to do. My, how times have changed...
This was a situation where my propensity to over-use Titanium White was a bonus — it really helped me get those chalky, dead colors right.
I haven't painted a self-portrait since high school! This one is a keeper.
