The Chrysalis + Instinct Amulet Art Project: Self-Portrait is a based on the premise that our IDENTITY serves as our best protection: It helps us to stay in the LIGHT: A true WARRIOR advances toward POSITIVE results and DEFENDS the GOOD in his/her LIFE.

The Self-Portrait Art is based on three guiding goals: Self-Realization * Self-Value * Self-Respect * With an end goal: Self-Worth* Thirteen grade 9 students signed up and attended after school, in a classroom with lots of natural light, offered by the Principal. I brought the art supplies: the young artists created the ART. Truly EDUCATIONAL for everyone involved, in this Community Service based project.

Each Self-Portrait work BEGINS the: A Brilliant Star We Are *Self-Portrait* Art Gallery©.

Be Free. Live Truth.

New Moon ~ January 2018


Brilliant Star 9: My self-portrait is about two faces: one that you show to the world and the other that you keep to yourself. So, basically, it is about the emotions that I allow others to see and the emotions that I don’t share.

There are two faces: one that represents my inner self, and the other my outer self.

I explored my artistic skills with a pastel medium, something I’d never used before. Normally I use shading pencils and colours, so this was out of my comfort zone. I’m glad I went for it.

I had fun doing this project.

All good things possible always…
