Todays word is....selfie

Now, I just don't do selfies. It is why I never join the get pushed challenge because it is so obvious from my project that I don't do them!!!

So, my good friend and incredibly talented artist Helen Sheldon was commissioned to paint a 5 minute portrait of me on a paper plate, at a few hours notice, with given 10 minutes maximum to paint said portrait. Do you know, it's better than the real thing!!!

Now two of my 365 friends are unfortunate enough to have made my acquaintance, and therefore can testify that I have the perfect face and physique for radio!!
I wanna real selfie, Sean!!! Though this one is pretty fun! I do like your bright blue eyes and your paper plate like complexion;-).

Wow, what a great idea. Good likeness.

Oh yes! Very good Sean. Your bright and shiny personality shines out of those blue eyes! ;-)

Can I also say Brilliant and very inventive. I need to find a Helen!

What a great idea Sean :D
posted January 8th, 2013  
fantastic idea Sean! I did the get pushed thing for a while, but was always terrified that a selfie would come up because I knew that I just would not do it, and I think that that is part of why I stopped. This is such fun, but makes us more intrigued to see the real thing.

I just love this! I don't join the get pushed challenge for a few reasons and selfies is the main one.
Are your eyes really that blue :-)

@kjarn I guess my eyes are a little less blue than on the screen, but not far off :))

Are you related to Rolf Harris? To begin with, I thought it was a self portait he'd painted!

@rhos He is my uncle Ann, but then, isn't he everyone's uncle?

@seanoneill You must be part Welsh or Australian then, Sean!!
posted January 9th, 2013  
@rhos Almost certainly Ann. I'm not 100% sure though, it was dark when we left!

Brilliant! : )
posted January 9th, 2013  
Great though this is, we wanna see the real you Sean! @soboy5 has manned up (despite his protestations). Seriously though, this is a very creative and original idea for selfie, so we will let you off!
posted January 9th, 2013  
@jackie8 Thank you Jackie! Search hard enough in my project and you will find me lurking in a big group. Search even harder and you will find a shot of me that a fellow 365er has posted!!! For reasons of national security though, it is better that I stay in the shadows!
posted January 9th, 2013  
@jackie8 and @soboy5 and his selfie is even more reason for me to stay in the shadows!!
posted January 9th, 2013  
haha, a great shot and a great idea! I don't do selfies either, unless it involves my feet or the back of my head!
posted January 9th, 2013  
lol.... very nice selfie!!! I hope the real you is in colour though!!! ;)
posted January 9th, 2013  
Great selfie, I'm with you I never take shots of myself and if people shoot me I usually delete me out of the shot.
posted January 10th, 2013  
I'd recognise you anywhere now...!
posted January 11th, 2013  
hahaha, what lovely blue eyes you have!
