Missy Austin: Introductory Image
Hello : ) This is a self portrait I did a few years back in one of my high school oil painting classes. Beyond the fact that the painting is of myself, I feel that it portrays somewhat of my style and my personality at the time it was painted. I feel like my style is increasingly sporadic and with this portrait I tried to capture a somewhat constant nature about myself with some simple symbolism. I frequently change my hair, but if I weren't to touch it, a wavy yellow ball would insue (as in the picture.) I also have worn this particular necklace daily for the past 6 years and each bead really does mean something to me and came from somewhere I remember. I'm also a BIG sunglasses junky and these were my go-to shades for quite some time.
