Self Portrait (June 2017)
Watercolor on coldpress.
Date: June 20, 2017
Size: 7in x 4in
A little self portrait in watercolors. I have facial aphasia—I can't recognize faces, not even my own. This doesn't stop me from painting faces accurately, it just means that I need to label all portraits I ever do because I can't reliably match clients to their painted faces.
I can tell the difference between portraits, though. I know this picture is me in a way that I cannot tell, at first glance, that my image in the mirror is me. (And yes, mirrors can easily spook me.)
That may or may not be interesting to some researcher.
