Because I Can

Inner Self Portrait

When artists do a self portrait they typically do it of the way they look, I did one of the way I see myself on the inside. The girl is naked to show transparency of the self because I have nothing to hide. The tiger stripes represent that I'm fierce. Her angel wings signify a soft side and commitment to be a good person. She has a flute tatoo on her arm because my musical abilities are a part of me (like a limb). A pencil behind the ear for the artist in me and the flood of red in the background to represent my passionate nature.
