Self Portrait Painted on MY Birthday February 15 2018

So this is what I saw when I looked in the mirror this past February 15 2018...I look a little ragged I think...Glasses on for the first time so I can actually SEE what I am doing...there is a new landscape of the Alford Valley behind me on the wall....Winter day, I am bundled up....took my wool hat off since I had painted it too many times...16x20" oil on canvas

I see life's struggles, alongside the strength, and determination needed to walk through them. Well done!

One self portrait.... just one! In which you do not look pissed. Please.

You know Father only did a couple of self portraits, and in them he either looked like a very angry turtle or he blurred his features so you could hardly make them out.

I must remind myself he was your first teacher. Did he say "Now, Katie... when you portray yourself, be sure to let your public know you're a SERIOUS artist.!"

Hey.. I'll paint a portrait of you. XXX Your best friend and biggest fan.... B
