Tuesday Tutorial: Wire Self Portrait

Love yourself first, and everything else falls in line.
You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
 ~ Lucille Ball

A set of inexpensive colored wire found in the craft section of Walmart, some needlenosed pliers, and a warm day at the park was all I needed to find a little harmony in a chaotic day!  Wire is an interesting medium for making a self-portrait.  I used a very light gauge of wire, which meant I really had to accept the imperfection, both in the form, and in myself!  Holding one's own image in your hands, spending time with it... created a similar feeling to taking a long bath, or doing something decadent.  Then I created a space of love and compassion with the watercolor behind it.  Taking a few moments to care for one's self does wonders for filling up your own vessel from which you pour kindness and joy to others.  Find time today!
