Self-Portrait



I did this last night while lying in bed. I went into it with the intent of making a self-portrait, although I wasn't looking in a mirror. I was probably already half-asleep and I think it looks remarkably coherent for that; but also, it does not at all look like me. Aside from having dark hair about that length and the two eyes a nose and a mouth thing, it is very definitely someone else. But I also know it's a self portrait, so I'm finding it all quite intriguing.

Past life, maybe? She looks kind of Native American to me.

I like your drawing and find your blog very interesting. I don't know this Goddess deck you use. I use a different Goddess deck sometimes, and see new goddesses in your post. Interesting.

Plus I see in you weekly goddesses something pointing to Obama... you know "Hope." A global level, even
