Okay, she's a ' camera whore '- Yes ? ( I've already starred as the leading lady )

Indeed she is a cam whore... Actually my whole ouvre is based on that concept. Here is my artist statement to explain it all: "These paintings are about how we (especially youth) use digital media and social media to brand ourselves to a digital public in the form of self pics (self portraits). I use a very flat (matte) paint to completely ungloss the painting, and crush the colors down to the fewest possible to render the subject matter. This stylistic choice reflects my observation that the self portraits are often highly retouched, posed, and otherwise carefully effected to create a particular perception of the individual, hence that person's personal brand. It speaks of a change in the "mask" we present to the world in opposition to our internal world of personal perception, and how this has taken on new dimensions facilitated by digital tools and social media. Whereas big companies have long carefully sculpted their public perception, we as individuals are now doing it too." You can see more at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lance-Rubin-Art/116069955932

Uh... I feel the need to explain that I like to suggest things with line and tone, and color is only a suggestion of what it could be if that is making any sense. Basically to go with something sloppy, raw, and yet somehow exacting enough to capture the spirit of the subject. (Ok, now I need to explain that I said that because your work is so highly and precisely rendered that it makes me feel like a slob). THANKS, by the way :]

That's ok, other people make me feel like a slob :)
I wonder if anyone made Leonardo Da Vinci feel like a slob?
Oh, I'm certain meanspitited people made Leonardo feel like a sloppy,' big-best-Joe ( nod to Amy Winehouse ) My thought is these people might be jealous, because true sloppyness can be a mark of Freedom; the unfiltered expression of emotions. Again, back to Amy Winehouse- Black is oftentimes quite gorgeous and white men are at times jealous in a Big way. Sorry to be cryptic- I hope you get my innuendoes and take no offense.
I never take offense at anything as life is far to short to spend it offended...
