Self Portrait in Flowers

 

John_Lennon_Black1

An obvious inspiration for this one is the famous head shots of the Beatles for the cover of With The Beatles which is an incredible album, there is also this portrait of John Lennon by Astrid Kirchherr which haunts me…

The flowers are an experimentation with colours and shapes which helps to frame the face and gives the portrait an extra feminine touch.
