Six at Sixty #2

6 @ 60 # 2
4 x 4 oil on board

I am painting 6 small 4 x 4 self portraits to commemorate my upcoming 60th birthday.  This is number two.  The idea for these portraits is to celebrate my past, my present and my future.  


  1. I love this idea. A nice way to celebrate. I've thought about a self portrait, but ... but, its scary,

  2. This is really wonderful Maria. I love how your self portraits have you looking away. A bit mysterious. I also love how you used the cool and warm tones in the face. Beautiful

  3. I would never recognize this pensive you! But it is a wonderful idea, and I anxiously await the series! Go girl! (And sixty must be the new 40) xo

  4. Nice job. That is a great painting series idea!
    Happy Painting,

  5. Loving this series...Wonderful eyes! Really great reflected light that just is gorgeous. Keep 'em coming:)

  6. This is such a great idea!! (Have I said that before?) You look so thoughtful. There is a story to this, I'm sure. I love that your portrait makes me think ....... don't laugh! I can think!! :-)


Yayyy!!! Thanks for commenting!
