"Be yourself: Everyone else is already taken."

Self-Portrait
This portrait is painted on 8x8 patterned scrapbook paper using Shiva oil paintstiks.

The above title is a quote by Oscar Wilde.  An Irish dramatist, novelist and poet (and an interesting character), living in the latter part of the 19th century.  Anywho, I am adding some quotes on the blog, to which I've included this one.  Right over there on the lower left side.
If you come across anything moving, inspiring let me know.
Here's another from Mr. Wilde.  "Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter."
