Homework Answer on A Self Portrait
It is the belief of psychologists that the way we see ourselves does not really depend on us, but rather how we believe other people view us. It is always based on how others perceive us and how we interact with them. The main concept is how people shape themselves based on their understanding of how others see them; actually, it is a matter of forming a self-image reflection of how others evaluate us in the environment.
In art, evaluations of who we are may mean more to an individual especially when such an evaluation is done based on a photograph, the basis being on how others form our own identity based on what they see and interpret about others.The interpretation about me based on the violin portrait would be able to signify and provide information about my actual behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs.

Therefore, this portrays me as a healthy individual with a flexible body. When playing a violin, one must increase the arm strength, improve the finger agility, improving and constantly changing the body posture while coordinating motor skills of the body.
