I'll be adding paintings to this blog at irregular times. My old blog had as part of the title "painting a day" and I never lived up to that.

This self portrait was a TON of fun to do as well as being somewhat therapeutic. Additionally it's given me the idea of doing more expressive self portraits as well as asking some friends/acquaintances if they would pose for photos showing various expressions like disbelief, pleasure, rage, etc. oil on canvas board 14" X 11"
I'm mostly retired and living in an area that is one of the country's premier spots for beauty- the Columbia Gorge. My house/studio is located out in the country (1st time for this city boy) bringing both joy and challenges.
