A Self Portrait
I used to paint self-portraits all the time. There was no deep or meaningful reason for my self-portraiture. I liked to paint and no one would sit long enough for me but myself. It was definitely good practice, but after awhile I got sick of painting myself and realized no one really wants to buy an artist's self-portrait (unless it does have some deep or meaningful reason). Anyway, I just wanted to paint a self-portrait. It's not particularly good and my hair is always a challenge, but I enjoyed doing it, especially seeing it evolve. And I definitely missed observationally mixing paint.
