another day another oil painting
another attempt at another self portrait. note to self..get a hand mirror. i know some people use one..i never have..or maybe i have..i'll look. anyway, its on the list. need one when i'm too flippin' far from the mirror. for detail..if you like that kind of thing. trying my best to hold a pose - thinking..where was i?? what tha? juggling everything and holding a pose is difficult (yes i'm complaining) ~and ~ painting at the same time...yikes. but its so cool. if it works. and what i'm going to do is..do one, as i did these two, and put them down, and do the next. this is what happened today. different lighting. different all around. they all will be. next --unless i have am lucky enough to have a model -- pray pray pray -- it will be me again in charcoal. i know you're enjoying this so much. try to contain yourself. really.
