Luscious Ninja Selfie 2014

I finished this just in the nick of time, literally. My application for Jerry’s Artarama 2nd Annual Self Portrait Contest was due on Sunday, and Sunday morning I was outside trying to get a good picture before the rain hit (success by the way!)

You can link directly to my entry here. 30 finalists are chosen by judges and 30 finalists are chosen by popular vote, so please take a moment to cast your vote (even if it’s not for mine) before April 13th. You can also view the amazingly detailed “Self-Portrait with Scissors” of my painting partner, Kathryn Yu.
