Deep in the Forest, self portrait with leaves

Deep in the Forest, self portrait with leaves, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. In Celebration of digital images, I created this by hand with dots of ink. It took a long time. Some pens worked better than others. Some wouldn't make a dot unless I moved them a little and then they made a dash. :-( Some pens made tiny dots and some made big dots. But here is is. Including a detail. (It doesn't really look that much like me, and makes me look younger than I am. It's more a self-portrait of my inner self, LOL!)

Self-portrait with haircut.

Self-portrait with haircut. I cut my hair today. I cut off more than
a foot which I will probably send to locks of love. However, I am
unemployed and they no longer provide mailing labels, so I may not.
One of these braids is from today and the other was cut when I was 14 years old.
