Spread the word!!!!

As of today, all the artist"s self portraits (including yours truly) from around the globe, from India to Indiana, have been posted onto my second blog: The Global Self Portrait Global Love In. Not to let a good blog and idea go to waste, I will, in a month or two, put out the word for another round of self portraits but with some sort of twist (time to dust off the old thinking cap). We need to add participants from other parts of the globe...say...China, Africa, South America, the Middle East etc. Can you help me get the word out, because as you know, the more the merrier!!! Remember...any medium from paint, pencil, pastel, watercolor, etc. to digital, photography, clay, ceramic, etc....skies the limit as long as it fits within the boundaries of the theme. This was my contribution to the first edition of The Self Portrait Global Love In.

Hi David,

Thanks so much for this project. I'm hoping some of the ease I had with the self portrait will migrate into my commissions. You are great. Your portrait is just fantastic.

Wow! I love this self-portrait! It not only shows your mastery with the medium, it shows your playfulness as a human being. I'll look for your next self-portrait challenge so that I can join in the fun.

The self portraits are just great and I love your blog. Thanks for sharing the process photos. I am so impressed with both the water colors and acrylics. Here's an idea for portraits next time: with hats. People will come up with some wild ones I'll bet. Count me in.
