Self-Portrait

This is a life-sized self portrait done in pencil. Part of the drawing is done on sheet music and the origami flowers in the bottom are also made out of music sheets. The background is painted in an array of blue and black acrylics. This work is a representation of the things I do not want to face, indicated by the figure covering her eyes from the dark, looming figures in the background, as well as the influence of creativity breaking away from the dark background (the origami, the drawn figure) to serve as a hopeful image.
