A Little Bit of Silliness

Self portrait: A night on Bald Mountain
I have been taking an on line class with Pamela Allen.  One of her exercises has us drawing inspiration from another artist's work or from another piece of art. 

One of the class members, Holly I think, chose Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain" as her inspiration.  I happen to love Mussorgsky and enjoyed her rendition of the witches dancing on a mountain top.

Now, I know that a "bald mountain" is really one which has no trees....but I got the giggles as I thought about doing a self-portrait with me bald and  a bed on my head (how else can bald people have bed heads????) as a Night on Bald Mountain. it is.

Yes...very silly....and it only took me an hour to put together. Do you think it looks like me? as if I had rosacea???

Giggle, giggle, giggle! We should all do more "playing" with our work. This funny little piece is like a good stretch before starting out on a run.
