40 – 60 minutes.
From a photo of Modigliani’s Head of a Woman, 1917, (links coming soon) and imagination to make it at least a little like me.

I grew up with my mother’s full-size copy of a Modigliani in the living room; seems like he was a member of the family, or at least his iconic woman was an ancestor.

I’m still into the graceful curves, long necks, and almond-shaped eyes, but really, what is the story with the frequent lack of eyeballs? How come it mostly works?

This is part of my Daily Portrait Project, in which I make a non-photographic image of myself every day and post it on the web. This series of self-portraits can be viewed in it’s entirety at studiojuliakay.com/portraitproject.
