Most days, painting time makes me happy...

...and then there are days when I attempt a self-portrait.

I must now take a walk down the street to 
drown my sorrows at the local watering hole.
painting size 6" x 8" ish, oil 

Seriously. 
Self-portraiture brings more things to the table 
than the painting of any other subject. 

EMOTIONS. ARGH.

  1. The eyes, glasses and the subtle shadows of the glasses are painted very well. But don't beat yourself up too much. I haven't tried a self-portrait in years. It seems impossible to detach yourself and be subjective when you know too well what's going on in the mind on other side of the face in the mirror.
