artist's self-portrait

Gwenn Seemel
Sympathetic magic (Be a good role model)
2010
acrylic on canvas
17 x 13 inches

I painted this self-portrait from a source photo taken in 2005. Working from old photos isn’t something I normally do, but it made sense this time, since I was looking to be reminded of what I felt like before I was diagnosed with endometriosis. I also made this painting from an old source photo.
