Selfless Portraits

Julia-Herkenhoff-Portrait-v2.7

A couple of my friends did Selfless Portraits recently, and it inspired me to do the same. Very relaxing, really.

My subject’s name was Julia, and she comes from Rio. She was wearing polka dots and glasses, while looking at her mobile phone. Don’t ask me how, but her index finger can really do that position.

She looks as though she was reading a text message. Who could it be from? She certainly looks a bit serious. I translated her thoughts to Portuguese, “Oh, não. Não ele, de novo!”

If you do or receive a Selfless Portrait, please send me a link!

UPDATE: I had to stalk Julia via Facebook to inform her about the artwork. Apparently Selfless Portraits didn’t notify her at all?!? Crazy, I know. Turns out she loves it. Fun.

UPDATE: Cool. After 36 hours my Selfless Portrait moved into the number one “most popular” slot. Thanks, no doubt, to all of my FB friends for liking.
