For my self portrait project I wanted to incorporate pictures that I felt best represented me and what I love. I chose two paintings that my dad made for me because he inspired me to do art throughout my life. One painting is of a flower and the other a bird. I included a tea kettle because I enjoy tea very much, that is also why I incorporated my cat mug (I also like cats). I included the opening page of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, because it is one of my favorite reads. I wanted these things to appear as a reflection.
