Sorry for the delayed reply!! Thank you so much Emona!

What a brave woman you are, Tali! How many of us can truthfully acknowledge and accept how we actually look. In this portrait, I see a strikingly beautiful woman with strong features - I see determination, a strong will, compassion, and a soft gentleness. Your narrative shows that you not only accept who you are, but also that you proud of who you are, and proud of what you have become in life. Your painting skills are truly amazing and this self portrait is proof of that. I hope your next self portrait will show more of your beautiful blue eyes! Outstanding work!

Artist's Description

I have sketched many many self portraits in my art journey. It has little to do with vanity, it has everything to do with a ready model. This self portrait is the first finished oil painting I have attempted of myself. It has taken me over four decades to learn to embrace my face, with my large nose, thick brows and protruding chin. The only truly non-semetic features I have are the color of my eyes. When I was young I mourned my lighter coloring in wanting to fit in with my Israeli Sabra peers. As a young adult, I longed to shed my non-American facial features. Now in my 40's I'm learning to just enjoy who I am -- a work in progress.
