8"x10" Matted Print of "Self" by Callie Russell. Matted to 11"x14" Unframed

Hi! My name is Callie. I'm a Bay Area transplant that has been creating art for over 25 years. Only now have I decided that I should share it with the world. "Self" is the first painting that I completed after a few years of not creating. Due to having Lupus, I lost the majority of my hair in 2013, and had to shave my head. It happened very quickly. Although I acted like the tough guy and said that it didn't matter, it did. I was hurt, and then upset because I felt like I didn't have a right to be hurt. I kept saying "it's just hair." After two years of this, one day I found myself staring in the mirror. It was like seeing my face for the first time. I was amazed at how much older I looked, but also at peace. I decided to do something that I had never done before. I wanted to paint my self-portrait. You will notice that in the painting, the hair is left out. I still look this way to this day, even though I now usually wear a wig for fun and for warmth. (A bald head can be a cold head!!) On days that I feel my most powerful, I leave the wig at home.
"Self" was painted in 2015. As you can see from the photo, the original painting is quite large, 3'x4', done on a stretched canvas in acrylic. I have printed it to an 8"x10", professionally printed on 100% cotton paper. Print has been linen "hinge" mounted to a double sided white backing board, and matted in bright white. Mat and board measure 11"x14", and are ready for framing. Mat and board are not hinged together, in the event that you, the buyer, may want to change out the mat for a different color. Mat, board, and print come together sealed in a protective crystal clear bag, where it can be stored until framed.
Print is labeled and signed by me.

So beautiful! It's greener than I thought it would be from the photo, which seems to have more blues and purples, but it's really pretty.

Received my painting and it’s absolutely amazing. Even more beautiful in person. The artist/seller was so nice and concerned, also consistent with keeping me informed of where my package was at all times!!
