Kathy Miller Self Portrait for CCPV show painting by Kathy Miller

The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach featured a new show…”The Art Of The Selfie”…Artist and longtime teacher at the CCPV, Ellen Diamond, spearheaded this event…showcasing the artists’ self portraits  … The criteria for our self portraits…paint something that defines you as an artist…We also donated a small painting with proceeds of the sale going to the Cultural Center.  I had such fun with this one!  The flower painting I am varnishing in the self portrait is the one for sale to benefit  CCPVB.

The APRON…not for sale…I have painted in this apron for years!

When someone asks you to paint yourself??? A self portrait????  I decided to take a photo (with my iPhone on a tripod and a remote ).  I loved that my apron showed up…

I did put my personality into this painting…a little smile as I am varnishing the painting (meaning it is finished…which is difficult for an artist to admit)…and the apron I love…

I loved going to the opening…so many artist friends with their paintings and interpretations.

I am happy to tell you…my flower painting sold…to a special friend…and my self portrait sold!

I think when an artist expresses themselves with humility and honesty maybe someone will appreciate it.  In my case….I think it was the apron!

Come celebrate with me! I’ll save you a seat at the easel….table!
