52 Fridays - A Self Portait Challenge - Week 1.

Sarah has invitied me to join a group on flickr, 52 Fridays, A Self Portrait Challenge. Which I admit scares me as I hate my photo being taken, who doesn't? It's all about "because we are learning to accept who we are, not who we were". So here I am, week 1. Photo by Grace, holding a drawing of myself drawn by Grace.



We had bit of an artist studio out the back, I got the girls textas and got them to sit still for 10 minutes while I drew them. They were happy with the results. I thought Daz's portrait was close to spot on?!
