SEPTENNIAL SELF-PORTRAIT INVITATIONAL | New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts | 5256 Magazine Street | New Orleans, LA 70115
through March 24, 2012
My pastel, “Fighting the Demon Within” portrays an ongoing battle for the artist facing the blank canvas in the struggle to express oneself.
The self-portrait, to me, is one of the most difficult and introspective subjects an artist can tackle – you must face yourself head on, physically, and more importantly, emotionally on many different levels.
