I bought a hat! But now I’m not so sure when, where and how I’ll wear it. I do admire women who don their chapeaux with nonchalance so I tried out a few attitudes, a la Sinatra, whilst aiming for the mirrored self-portrait. None of the noisy images do the hat much justice though my ego appreciates lack of definition.
I’ve an uncomfortable likeness to Edna Birch from “Emmerdale” and so I tried out some post-camera alterations with Smart photo editor, morphing first in to Darth Vader and ending at a wallpapered version with surreal homunculus. I think it suits the Bloomsbury connection well and perhaps the little figure represents the creative tendency struggling into existence.
So here is a portrait of the artist…as you’ll never see her again!
