PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST
At some point in the career of a painter, there comes a desire to do a selfie. This is mine. Sometimes, one lacks a model to paint. Sometimes, as in this case, one is asked to attend a dinner party for artists to which each guest is expected to bring a self portrait. So I did this one in two short sessions. Not exactly alla prima, but almost. I did it one day and touched it up a bit the second. It is kind of fun to do a self portrait, but revealing. I became acutely aware that I am not seventeen years old anymore. Oh, well.
