10 thoughts on “Self-Portrait”
Our school does that assignment too! They put them up for open house, usually, and it’s hard to tear me away from them: it’s so interesting to see the differences in how each kid finishes the sentences.
That’s really good. Looks exactly like him.
I see a Pitta, a fiery sort.
(I did a series on this; here’s the second post: http://writemindopenheart.com/2011/08/ayurveda-2-ama-health.html. I can get you some resources if you want to know more.)
I wonder if a Pitta-balancing diet might calm the fire within.
He has remarkable self-awareness.
What is the meaning of the flames in his chest? Does he talk about being an artist when he grows up? Looks like he could…
He’s been drawing flames like this for the past few months. I showed him once how to create them by layering colors.
Great self-portrait. And I like the multicolored background, too. I’m guessing the 4 objects are things he likes/enjoys doing?
Yes, except the notepad one throws me: he doesn’t like to write. I wondered if it wasn’t his list of chores that he likes to cross out, which leads him to the other interests on the drawing.
Holy crap – that looks exactly like him. That boy has talent.
