Selfportrait



oil on canvas - Öl auf Leinwand - huile sur toile
40 cm x 40 cm / 15,75" x 15,75"
sold - verkauft - vendu

Everybody tells me, I look terribly stern here, but you don't smile at yourself when trying to concentrate on capturing the features! How do you like my old fashioned painting smock?!
I love it, because it's very useful - no changing into work clothes anymore!
Saves a lot of time.

Thank you! People who know me either thought it was my mother or that I had painted myself looking like eighty years old, so although I think it looks quite like me, I guess I do actually look younger.
But, as Kris Shanks, a good daily painter from California, put it
"It's all about the art"!
