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.

Lovely, Dawn! I've always wanted to do a self portrait but I'm not very cooperative. I do have a favorite painting that I did of you though. Remember when you modeled for Liz and me doing our demo at the Waterway fest? You were an inspiring model! Sounds like you were more cooperative for us though! Keep up the great work. Love your blog!
