SELF PORTRAIT TUESDAY PART FIVE!!!
self portrait tuesday-personal history
to continue with this month's theme, i decided to post a picture of the first piece of art i ever sold. i made this piece when i was a junior in high school. back then and to this present day, i have loved all things astrology (pisces baby!!) and thought this would be a great thing to work on. for those of you that don't know, its the astrological signs along with their planetary ruler.
as you can see, it is a large piece of canvas (use my piggies for scale;) that i primed and painted black. of course the signs were drawn free hand by me and then painted white.
i loved this piece.
my art teacher bought it from me for $50!!! i'm not sure if this is allowed or not (teachers buying art from students) but i was friggin' ecstatic when she said she wanted it and it was the best $50 evaaa (hmm...wonder what i spent it on...).
to this day, i often wonder whatever happened to this piece and wish that i had kept it.
