Today's Painting on the easel


It has been at least nine since I have painted a self portrait. I have never done one in oil so, I must have been is a brave head space today. Really fun, really challenging. I have a lot of ideas about where to take this. I did the initial blocking in and some tightening today, but the paint needs to set a bit, so time to lay off.

Such a striking image of yourself. You must be feeling better to work on this too. Looking forward to where you will take this.

How cool! Those eyes...those beautiful blue eyes. Glad you seem to be feeling better!

This is beautiful already - very recognizable as you. I was just commenting on another blog today - I think one day I will do a self portrait that somehow incorporates my real image as well as my self image, or the image in my mind's eye. (It's much younger, thinner and more interesting!)

A very beautifully done selfportrait, you captured yourself in a way only you can. I need to get started on my own lol.
