Self Portrait

Self Portrait

24" x 20"
Oil on Wood Panel

Since Lori did not like the other portrait I painted last year, it became necessary to try a new effort.

I chose a more classic type presentation

I enjoyed the process. It is an interesting experience to look very closely at my own face and then try to recreate it. Flesh is so different because of the structures and blood under the surface

I couldn't resist adding a few brushes to the painting.

  1. I think eyes are your specialty. I'm with Mom and like the smilely picture better. It's more true to life. Love you!
