The View From My Sofa

It just so happens that I was very sick with a cold for a week at which time I lay on the sofa and watched the sky change colors outside my windows....I am very happy doing this...for a while ..but then I need to get up and paint what it is that I have been looking also helped that I read a book about the artist Nell Blaine which did influence these studies!

New Year's Eve Self Portrait

I am looking a little pale...the light was very cold that morning...I really did look a bit grim when I saw  myself in the mirror or rather just seemed too pale so I grabbed the hat to add some student who was painting with me said I looked "old" I guess that's life? 65 in February....20x24 oil on canvas
