I had a few hours to spend working on this painting this afternoon. I think it's coming along just fine. Of course, as John Singer Sargent said, ""It seems there is something wrong with the mouth! A portrait is a painting with a little something wrong about the mouth."
And, compared to some of my recent past self-portraits this one is not so dark and gloomy. I have a better outlook on life. That's good.
This is Self-Portrait 2009, acrylic on canvas 11" by 14".
