Chip on my Shoulder

Chip on my Shoulder, 5.5x8" watercolor, ©Diane Mannion

Day 13 of the 30/30

Was going to call this My Sister because my husband thinks it looks like my evil twin.  Self-portraits are not easy, especially at my age.  The parrotlet (world's smallest parrot) is Maxie, couldn't resist using the title, so he is playing the role of a Chip.

Very cute! I need to try more selfies. I'm inspired.

Selfies are NOT easy... yikes. Thanks for your comment, Jenny!

Love the painting and the title!!

Diane Mannion said...

Thanks, Wendy! But I'm much more beautiful and younger looking than this painting. Tough being honest.

A delightful picture, even if your evil twin sister has locked you in the closet and taken your place...only noticed by your discerning husband. :)

Diane, this is a stunning likeness of you and I absolutely love it. I can't do a nice selfie with a camera and here you are painting yourself! I'm so overly impressed. You are a true treasure to me!

Thanks, Susan! Was not delightful to paint though. Ugh... should have painted more selfies when I was twenty.

Kathleen... thank you for your sweet comment! But waiting for someone to say, "Oh, you're MUCH better looking than that!"
