oil on panel
That's me. I have reworked this painting more times than I would like to admit. It was really hard. Hard to look at and hard to solve. Logistically speaking, staring in the mirror and at the canvas at the same time is difficult. Assessing measurements in the mirror is a lot of fun. I am sure that some errors is measurement, value, and color may still exist but I am laying this one to rest. All that complaining aside, I will continue to paint self portraits as learning tools. We learn the most from our toughest subjects. To all of my relatives out there, relax, you won't find these under the Christmas tree. I promise.
