Self Portrait

I mentioned the Portrait Project in the previous blog about Kimberly, my portrait partner.

A self portrait is the second part of the Portrait Project. I have done some self portraits in the past, but all of them have failed to do more than capture a likeness. And I want to do more.

Among artists, self portraits have a long tradition. Probably because model fees can add up and an artist needs only a mirror to paint him or herself. You can see many examples of self portraits by clicking here. Or here.

I will do a little more studying and try this again.

One big frustration I have as an artist is that my skills always lag far behind my vision. Maybe one day ...
