My version of the selfie takes a bit longer than the nano-second it takes to click a camera on a phone. I have been wanting to work from life more and find that I am usually the only one here...so I paint self-portraits. I have difficulty seeing myself and my canvas without wearing my glasses...so all my self portraits have my glasses slipped down my nose a bit.
I think it was important for me to do this self portrait because my last one was so angst-filled! I needed to do an "I'm OK" self portrait.
Now I can concentrate on getting some paintings done...now that I am all warmed up!
