Elizabeth's Cell Portrait

Elizabeth also wrote her literary personal essay about "Prufrock."  However, since she has provided our class on multiple occasions with doorways into literature, especially poetry, through her drawings and paintings, I asked her if I might include a work of art that relates to "Prufrock."  All of the students in our class created "Greatness Gallery" exhibits, and Elizabeth's was in part about the distinctions between good and great visual art. Eighteen years old, Elizabeth has given permission for her "Cell Portrait" -- one way she "prepared a face to meet the faces that you meet" -- to appear in this blog.

  1. Nice job.

    I like the eye among the camoflage.

    Also, the lips are so resolute. Nicely offset by the shocking pinkness.

    Joan gets props for posting this.
