Self Portrait


Myself in Wood

An oil painting "sketch". I'm supposed to create a self promotional kind of image. Kind of like a personal artistic logo. So I figured, what is more personal than a self portrait? I don't know how successful this works for that, but it is my shot at it.

So anyway, I'm really disgusted with my last painting, and sometimes I never want to see it again. I suppose that is allowed. I'm pretty much done with painting perfect, white skinned faces. I don't know what that was all about, but I would like to move on. Not forgetting what I've learned, but to gain more excitement in the images. I need to work on concept development (a need that goes on forever I'm sure).
