Oil painting - Self Portrait

today i picked up my oils and began to paint - i had began something yesterday ---didn't care for it, so i trashed it. really i just leaned it against the wall. maybe i can save it from the watery depths of hell later. not now though. need a distraction. but need to paint. no one around to be my victim but me so..i sat. which is difficult as you know. actually its a great thing to do, as you know as well i'm sure. so i'll be doing more. so sorry in advance for the many self portraits that you'll soon be seeing. did this quickly, as i goofed around with the other too long, and had so much time in my ''work'' day to actually work. a couple hours at best. with breaks for barking dogs who demand my attention. and a cuppa break or two.
