Self Portrait

Yesterday I showed you two works from a wonderful exhibit I saw at the Heard Museum by the artist Rose B Simpson. Today I show you a work by her mother, Roxanne Swentzell. The title of this piece, “Self Portrait” takes on a whole new meaning when you see the figure holding a mirror with her toes while drawing on a sketch pad. She is truly creating a self-portrait.


In the small photo you can see the sketch pad and drawing. This is such a clever piece of artistry that I just had to share it with you.
I apologize for the quality of the photos. I had to take them through the Plexiglas case that surrounded the subject.

Sharon, interesting sculpture. And I saw your comment on my website about Jay Leno and car auctions. I actually saw Jay Leno driving in Los Angeles in an open top collector car. I was sitting at the traffic light and he went driving right by me. Kind of cool.

I had no idea that Roxanne Swentzell's daughter also an artist. Her mom and their family live here in the Santa Fe area.
