self-portrait exercise

Decided to do a self portrait a day to practice translating  what I see, often,  the way a writer would practice choosing words. These self-portraits below are from a series about 8 yrs ago. I was going into the studio and just getting down to it as a warm-up before working on the ongoing projects for the day.  I remember with these last ones I had such fun experimenting with media and approaches. In some I thought of the face as a landscape, others shapes on an axis, and others more classically as features and an expression none to offend with unflattering details and emphasis.
