mormor o jag



over xmas, i brought this self portrait on the right up from my parents' house. it is from 1993, when i was 20. it's crazy to me how similar it is to the painting i have of my mormor when she was little. i received her painting as a gift from her when i turned 25 (i got to choose from all her art). i wonder if it was not in my mind somewhere already when i drew this self portrait!

The portraits are amazingly similar. At first glance I thought it was the same person. I'm fascinated with likenesses from previous generations. I have a pic of my great-great grandmother on my wall and every time I look at it I see myself looking back.

I love the colors of the painting! Reminds me of Robert Henri's work!
