I am loving the color YELLOW today. I grabbed my yellow cotton sweater to wear to work today after seeing Diane Sawyer in her bright yellow this morning on Good Morning America.

This yellow fixation started when I saw the beautiful yellow tunics in "Slumdog Millionaire". It continues as I see daffodils coming up all over town!

Aren't these fabulous????

Here is one from Target....oh, to have arms which could be bared! Sigh! Of course, LOL! it is TOO COLD for that yet anyway. SO, I will begin watching for the perfect yellow fabric and will sew my own yellow tunic for spring...with 3/4 sleeves.

Here is my pattern, ready and waiting!


Now, for my art exercise. This is a watercolor self-portrait. It is actually 2 halves, separated by a line of masking tape (which is removed as I paint). Realism is not the goal here, though I had to chuckle after scanning and seeing this on the screen, that I seem to have a "black eye" on the shadowy cooler side of the face!

Doing self-portraits often is recommended for artists....and especially when one is tired of painting other subjects. There are even Internet art groups which encourage painting a self portrait weekly, or perhaps doing 100 self-portraits. I'll post these as I work them out! Ha!!

Meanwhile follow this link for book on doing Self-portraits!

I love this! Really good. And I love the yellow. Wish we had daffodils popping up all over town.

All the yellow is so pretty but sadly it doesn't look good on me. It turns me yellow!

I like the self portrait and I don't think you look like you have a black eye!!

I have that book! But then that's nothing new....I have so many I lose count!
