Nearly every artist has endeavored to create a self-portrait. It’s neither narcissism nor ego, but a valuable lesson and reminder that when I create a portrait, I am trying to capture someone else’s vision. It reminds me that I am bringing life to someone else’s memory.
I learned through my own self-portrait how to meticulously recreate details, as well as provide artistic interpretation, such as adding landscape or background for a customized work of art. “Self-Portrait”, 30 x 40 inches, Acrylic on Canvas 2018 © Ingrid C. Lockowandt
