Did a couple mini paintings today while I was waiting for my Fiance to wake up from his nap. (His mom is coming to visit in a few days and we needed to make another run to the storage unit but he'd asked for a nap first.)
Top one is a self portrait. Got my hair done last weekend by my good friend Carla over at the Double O Salon in Eaglerock, CA. I've been dying to have lime green hair for a couple years now and decided that it was the right time. Haven't really had the time to take a photo of my hair, so I decided to do a painting instead. You know, because it takes such a long time to take a photo with a digital camera and upload it to the web.
Since the portrait was so small and I was working on a sheet of 4"x 6" paper, I decided to use up the rest of my paper and paint by just doodling something. The shrunken head is what happened. Been thinking about those a lot lately, glad I finally got that idea out on paper.
