This week I have been doing a photographic study on reflections. During the study I learned a couple of things...1. I hate looking in mirrors and do so as little as possible 2. i didn't have a full length mirror in my house. So naturally, since I hate looking in mirrors, I decided to buy one. And also, since my life seems to be filled with one project after another I decided to turn my new mirror into a project. So I painted it.
I went to Target and bought a cheap beveled edge mirror. Then I cleaned it and painted it with acrylics. It was hard to find a neutral place to take photos of it and I ended up in the bathroom. Taking photos of mirrors is challenging because you have to make sure there isn't a ton of crap in the reflection distracting from the actual mirror!
Apparently my repulsion for the color yellow is changing. I'm even wearing it now.
Honestly, I don't think painting a mirror is practical at all, at least not with basic acrylic paints. I probably won't be able to clean it very often, if at all. But it sure is pretty, right???
You can see more reflection photos in my Flickr photostream.
