So, this is my first piece of vanity art for the year, and the first to depict my new hair color. (The painting doesn’t show you my ridiculously long roots, of course.) It kind of sums up my current mood these last few months. (You can Check it out on deviantART, if you like.)
The title is a reference to the color scheme and the feeling of embarrassment. This portrait does a good job of illustrating my post-break-up feelings. On the one hand, I’m saddened and humiliated by my situation. On the other hand, I’m branching out into a new chapter of my life, and there’s a feeling of freedom in that; a shy flirtation with my now unknown future.
