It's always fun to make our own portraits, I think you did good on yours.

Neesie said...

I've only ever tried to draw a portrait once so kudos to you. Great photo and self portrait!
Happy PPF to you too :D

Linda Kunsman said...

You are lovely and so is your portrait. Love the cheery haiku too. Happy PPF!

Faye said...

Gillena, you did a fantastic job of capturing your likeness. I did a self portrait one time where 1/2 of the face looked like me and the other half looked like my sister!

I love both pics - the dark and the light (great grunging). I also enjoyed each step along the way from your photo to the hand drawn portrait.
