Self X 2




Two for one today, I was recently asked to post some of my self-portraits here, so here they are. The first one is 5"x7", almost a postcard haha and the second is 10"x 20" which has so much paint on it I think it weighs a full pound. I usually paint self-portraits about every 2-3 months, not as a goal but thats usually when I get the itch to up my figure or portrait work and i usually test whatever new technical idea I have, on myself. On the election, the people have spoken, I agree, happy, nuff said..... :) this post Im gonna start something I really wanted to start on post one but ,better late then never.?. my favorite quotes: "Education as we have it does as much to thwart the recognition of individual experience as lack of education limits it" Robert Henri. I love it , being mostly self taught I thoroughly believe persistent hard work trumps any reciept from any school. paying attention doesn't hurt either :)

Thank you for the compliment, I can look for the one your talking about, It was a rare pastel piece and do to my current position of loathing pastel I bet its buried deep in the round file (thats a trash barrel),I'm kidding! If I find it you can have it.
