This painting went on a long journey to get where it is now. I had about a two month period where I didn’t paint anything. I started the semester teaching five classes. Additionally, I had a public exhibition of my work as a painter this spring. These things have kept me a bit preoccupied. Alas, a window of opportunity to dabble with the paints again presented itself.
I was a bit rusty I might add, you can see this below in the documentation of this work. Nevertheless, I found my bearings and kept applying. This is what I came to feel most comfortable with. I call you it portrait. Self? Maybe? Who knows that’s just what I see.
