Self Portrait at 51
I had plans today that were messed up by the weather so I ended up doing this quick little self portrait of myself today at home in my living room by using the camera on my laptop and painting myself that way instead of trying to set up a mirror. Its 12 x 9 in oil. It has been a year since I did my last self portrait and I think I should do at least one a year--I am the cheapest model money can't buy.
