Self Portrait

It is art group Tuesday for me. I'm taking my Self Portrait for Show and Tell today. She isn't quite finished, but is very close. I'm debating whether or not to put earrings on her.

With Earrings
Without Earrings
What do you think? I've sewn the earrings on and removed them once already. I just can't make up my mind! If you have an opinion on the earrings please leave a comment. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time making this decision!

I have a few other things I plan to add to the background. I have just scattered them around on the photo below so you can see them. I have not settled on exact placement. I want to get the binding on first.

I would only use one of the L's, not sure which one though. I like the pink one if I use the earrings since they are pink too. If I don't use the earrings I don't have a favorite. The green and blue one both kind of disappear into the background.

Decisions, decisions ...! Hopefully the other members of my art group will have opinions too!

It's a beautiful portrait. I vote for no earrings. They take away from your pretty green eyes.

I love your portrait. Yes, keep the earrings on. They are so cute and add color. Great job. Be sure to show us when you are finished with her.

I like the pink L and no earrings. It seems the earrings take away from the portrait.

I have to throw in my two cents. At first I would have said keep the "earrings", then when looking at the second photo, I'd probably skip the earrings (because you have the bow) and use the pink L!

Love your self-portrait! I would skip the earrings as your hair has a nice line as is. Very cute.

I love it. I was going to say no earrings, and when I saw the other stuff you want to add that confirmed it. I would skip the earrings.

I think the L should go on your shoulder, like Laverne's did! LOL! That's what those L's reminded me of. Well done!
