My Power Animal May be a Deer, but I Really Identify With Birds

This is an art piece that I am putting in a women's art show. I wanted to paint my profile, bc of my love/hate relationship with my nose. Let's just say that now that I have grown into it I love it, but there was a time in my teens and even childhood that I daydreamed of having surgery. Now I would never dream of getting rid of something so uniquely mine. 

Here are some photos from original photograph to the finished product. Though I don't think I did a perfect job getting all of the proportions right, it is still recognizable as a self portrait. It took a while to get the nose right... fitting I suppose. : )
