Strawberry Girl

Amanda Bertrand
Porterdale, GA United States
Painting: Gouache

The vision behind my self portrait is to emphasize that I am still beautiful even with skin that is far from perfect. Since I have struggled to find myself pretty with boiling red acne on my face, I painted myself as pink layers to try to achieve a warm and fuzzy feeling. The strawberry slice symbolizes finding my acne pretty in a unique way and being able to grow to love the scars left behind with the strawberries blooming in front of me.
