Virtual Refrigerator: Silhouettes

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! This weekly blog hop was started by Jennifer at A Glimpse of Our Life, and is now also co-hosted by Angels of HeartHomeschool Coffee Break, and Every Bed of Roses. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing the art that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges!
We have been back to school after our holiday break, and Kennady finally got to do a fairly simple art project that had been next in her lesson book for a long time. Really, the only reason she put it off so long was that she was having trouble getting her model (that would be me) to agree to sit for the portrait. And I was honestly hoping Dad or a brother would sit as the model instead. Not only do I generally dislike my picture being taken, I don't much care for being drawn either! Even in silhouette.

The instructions were to draw the silhouette of the subject's head and part of the shoulders in white pencil on black construction paper...

Then cut out the silhouette and mount it on white paper. Kennady did two silhouettes of me - one with my hair down, and one with a ponytail. We agreed that the one with my hair down is the better of the two, and more accurate as well.
Although apparently I had some sort of a cowlick thing going on at the back of my head.

See the linky at the end of this post to share your art post!

Thanks to Heather at Only Passionate Curiosity, you can grab the image below and help us share about the linky.

Those are so cool. Great job Kennady! I don't like my picture being taken either.
