A picture my daughter took of me, for publication in "J Select" (a Tokyo area entertainment & fashion magazine. I was featured in the Feb/March issue.

It remains one of my favorite pictures of myself. ^_^

So this would be meri-unmasked, then? ;) You're quite a lovely young lady and although I'm not surprised that you have a daughter, I am surprised that she's old enough to wield a camera. It seems you've surprised a few of us with that. :D

That is indeed me! :-) & I am lucky to have a baby-face...I'm actually 43 (my daughter Charlotte is 16).

Seriously? And here I thought you were younger than me! Revel in the baby face, you'll be making other women jealous for many years to come. :D

Its a very nice picture and love the backdrop you chose. It provides a nice contrast to you and the masks.

Thank you (my daughter Char did an awesome job...she wants to be a photographer). We took that pic against the neighbor's pine tree. It leans over our driveway & sways alarmingly in storms, but it's served as a good background for my art on a number of occasions. ;-)

Lovely photo. It's great to see the artist with heir work. I also love how this puts your masks in perspective as far as size.
(ChibiButterfly, I agree, she doesn't look old enough to have a daughter. :) )

I should really put more pictures of the masks being worn in here...it's just hard to get good quality pics (& permission), but I ought to try.

LOL you guys are too kind; my daughter is 16 and I'm 43, but thank you so much! ;-)

I hear you, especially on the permissions.
You still don't look that age. :)
