1 hour self portrait

"self portrait"

6in x 6in oil on ampersand hardboard

It's been a while since I've posted anything to this blog. We've had a lot going on in our life over the last few months. We sold a house, bought another, moved in and then found out that I'm losing my job. Luckily I've been able to secure employment thru March 2011 but beyond that who knows. Life is full of changes and we are certainly in the middle of that now. I took an hour to myself on my birthday to paint a self portrait. This is my first attempt at a self portrait and it is obviously not as polished as a studio portrait but I really like the "looseness" of it and think that it really conveys what's going on in my life now.
