back   Self-portrait Project   Bruce Taylor, Atlanta photographer, asked me to do a self-portrait that he could use in a photo project. I did some sketching and finally an oil pastel on found object, a cutting board. Bruce took this image and did what you see below. 9/2016
I expected some sort of cubist image but was pleasantly surprised to see what Bruce came up with, especially the strange & strong illusion.
