"Eve" - a painting from a series by Matt Held of Facebook self-portraits. Money quote from Held:

My goal for this project is to build a large collection of paintings (sum 200) which mirror individual self-portraits. With the development of social networking sites, I've developed an interest in how people take simple or complex snapshots of themselves, post them to their page as a representation of who they are and what they want people to see.
