Obnoxious Self Portrait by ValentinaKaquatosh Obnoxious Self Portrait by ValentinaKaquatosh
I am obsessed with 18th century hairstyles, headdress, and wigs. In this painting I picture myself in such a coiffure but updated for the 21st century. I like to juxapose the antique with the modern.

Wonderfu portrait. :) With your double chin, flowing hair and plumes very much reminds me of some of the Vigee LeBrun protraits of Queen Marie Antoinette in 1787 and 1788 - hope you do a portrait of the Queen like this - think you'd do a great job!!

Oh, wow, thank you! Vigee LeBrun is a favorite artist of mine and very influential to my style, so nice to see you pick up on that. I'll be sure to draw/paint portraits of the Queen later this year!

I too so love Vigee LeBrun - especially her protraits of the Queen - I just sent you one - a close-up of Marie Antoinette from Vigee's 1787 portrait of her - so much like your own portrait - lovely!! Can't wait to see you draw /paint the Queen :)
