This year in my Facebook group Emotional Storytelling we have been working to inspire and create new images based on weekly themes. Self portraits are something I am personally terrible at creating the time to work on, so last week I presented a self portrait challenge to our group and it has been the most rewarding and creatively inspired week for so many of us.
More and more I find myself so overwhelmed with the beauty our members create that I have to publish multiple blogs just to fit them all in. Our self portrait week was definitely one of those occasions. I absolutely loved the opportunity to put a face and a feeling to all of these beautiful artists.
Frida Kahlo once said “I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better.” This was our inspiration for the week and it was an incredibly powerful one.
