Two Newbies

Birds and wallpaper...yes, but in a different way. This particular painting is for the mighty xArt group's project numero cinco. This month's challenge: include a mirror(s) into our pieces.

This is a perfectly fitting topic due to my most recent artistic dilemma. I've really been struggling with self-portraits. Its hard to convey how I look without incorporating how I think I look. For this piece I wanted the idea of two objects mirroring one another but having different reflections.

Here is a third ornament to add to the Learning to Draw in Fives series. I am surprised at how much I am enjoying working on something so nonbird-like and so small (this is on a 5x7" piece of masonite).
