Day 21: 30 Days of Self Portraits

Different 🌟😜🌟

I wanted to play with a different style on this one. Loving the idea of creating all different kinds of moving shapes and colors for background instead of trying to make it "real" feeling. What is "real" really, anyways? We all move in and out of different states of being on a regular basis.


I'm wearing Chiron (the symbol) as some nice *bling* on my ear 🤣


I get a lot of different kinds of visions on a regular basis. Pictures, words, sounds... and they all intermingle with each other like a giant synesthesia party. Most people won't and don't understand why an artist does what they do, but they don't have to. We just know that we have to keep moving, flowing, growing, experimenting, creating, and staying in that state of curiosity and wonder about life.


Sounds for the day: Different Situations, Wilhaeven


"As an artist I have a vision, but it’s not always supported. I’ve had many people try to direct my art over the years. Telling me: “Paint what people want.” We all have bills to pay and there is temptation to reproduce what people have loved before, to create the safe bet. But I want to express myself in new ways. I think all artists should take risks and be creative. I need to push my boundaries." —Camilla d'Errico
