End of Journal Watercolor Self Portrait of Jana Bouc, Artist, graphite and watercolor, 7.5x5"

End of Journal Self Portrait, graphite and watercolor, 7.5×5″

Just like my life, my blog and journal posts are all mixed up. I always save the last page in each journal for a self-portrait and this was in the Moleskine watercolor notebook that I finished last month.

I did the sketch standing at the big mirror in my studio which I just knew would be great for self portraits. The unlovely, but much-loved apparel in the sketch are a T-shirt my son made for me back when he was a teenage graffiti artist, and my favorite, funky, old grey sweatshirt that I wear all the time at home/in the studio.

The past month has been a bit of a wild ride, with a major transition in progress, which I’ll write about and celebrate here once it’s complete. In the meantime, I’ll see if I can catch up with more posting, painting and drawing!

    • Hi Gail, Thanks for visiting my blog and for writing. I’m sorry if I worried you. I’ve been doing my blog since early 2006 and plan to keep at it for a long time, probably with more posting go forward than I’d been doing lately. Jana
