#SelfieArt Day not really a #doodlewashaday

April 25th  The 25th day of the month as far as I know is still #SelfieArtDay.   So instead of doing my #doodlewashaday I actually tackled a self portrait.  A serious one.  I am not even in an exotic place this month.  Unless you want to take into account this self portrait is based on a photo taken of me on board Holland America’s ship  Nieuw Amsterdam in the middle of the Caribbean a couple of winters ago.  To make sure the drawing resembled me I put it in front of my husband and asked, “Who is this?”.  The answer was correct, “Its you.”  Which I will take as a compliment.  Yay I did it!!  But then hubby added, “With bug eyes.”  sigh.  Regardless I will post and present to you with a certain amount of pride my #selfie for April 25th 2016.

Original art by Susan Feniak  pencil on Canson Mix Media 7”x 10” paper.  If I had added color this could pass as a #doodlewashaday too.

Many thanks to Teresa at One Good Thing  https://teresarobeson.wordpress.com for hosting #SelfieArt

      Wise decision! I should know better then to ask my hubby. LOL!! Thank you for your kind comment Jill. I think to draw oneself and share it one needs to have a bit of bravery. You are right there.

    I think you look very glamorous. In fact, you remind me of a young Shirley McLaine–has anyone ever told you that? N.

      OMG yes Nina! I have a close friend who has likened me to Shirley McLaine. I laughed her off. I thought she meant I acted like her not looked like her. Who knew? Thank you for thinking I look glamorous. I am flattered. See me blush? 🙂


  13. Tell your hubby those are not “bug eyes” but big, beautiful eyes! Sheesh, spouses…LOL! Yes, it is still Selfie Day as far as I know, too, so I’m glad you played along! Will post mine shortly.
