Acrylic painting on 5 x 7 inch wrapped canvas
Well, I didn't set out to paint a self portrait. Actually, in my sketch (yes, I even sketched this first) this was going to be a portrait of a boy. Except that when I painted his eyes, I realized that he looks a good bit like me - a younger me! Definitely not a boy! Do you think so, too?
I really like how the canvas shows through, although it is harder to paint in details or do anything with a pencil on canvas. But I do like the resulting look - very different again. Something has definitely changed with my paintings. Loving it!!!
Thank you so much for your encouragement on my last painting. It is so much fun to share this with you all!!
