Maria Bennett Hock - self portrait

Maria - February 2014
9 x 12
Oil on Raymar Panel

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 I paint self-portraits.  I have difficulty seeing myself and my canvas without wearing my 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 that I am all warmed up!
