Inspire Me Thursdays - Bold


When I saw the prompt this week was "bold" it brought to mind this self-portrait I painted a while ago. I was just looking back at it and remembering the way I felt when I did it - I was definitely more bold at that time - and I think this comes across in the painting.

RED...the power colour!
You must be 'gearing up' for something wonderful.

Bold and beautiful. Hmm...you were bolder then huh? Something tells me your boldness is showing up front and center with the new emergence of this "self portrait".

"Go for the Bold"!!

This is lovely. You look very self confident and a bit naughty here.

i agree with others...there's something about to happen & it shows in the look in her/your eyes!

Color amazes me. I could feel my face get warmer when I looked at this!

Intriguing! I love your choice of colours! I find it very difficult to use red, so I found your painting very inspiring. I also enjoyed reading the comments here, it made the painting even more interesting. It is like partaking in a discussion about art, even if it is "only" in cyberspace, and that interests me more and more.
