Self-portrait - Both Sides by Heather Noske. This self-portrait by artist Heather Noske is painted in colourful acrylics on canvas and measures 42 centimetres wide by a meter tall. The portrait is abstract and colourful, but recognizable as a woman with long hair and glasses with black cat eye frames. The work is rendered in colourful sections outlined by thick black strokes. For example, the apple of her left cheek is a crescent of muted pink separated from her yellow jaw and blue nose by thick black lines. Her lips are full and bright red and her pink neck and chest disappear into a black top.

Behind her glasses, Heather has one eye pressed closed and the other barely open. Her green Iris staring off to the right. She looks as if she's staring into a bright light, the gentle curl of her lips and furrow of the brow creating a good-natured grimace. Her hair is long rendered in pink, blue, and red swept over to one side and gathered in a thick ponytail that cascades down her shoulder.
