2015 Self Portrait 1

"2015 Self Portrait 1"
Oil on board 12" x 12"

I painted this portrait while looking in a mirror on my easel. Ingrid Christensen was trying to teach us to look at large shapes then smaller. We worked with a limited palette. I like this portrait as it was an unusual view of me concentrating and not animated as usual "selfie's"| are. I used a stylus and wrote the Shel Silverstein around my portrait. It is hard to see in this photo.

Shel Silverstein quote:
"Underneath my outside face
There's a face none can see
A little less smiley
A little less sure
But a whole lot more like me."
