Acrylic on canvas
A few times I tried to pint myself looking in the mirror, but boy is it hard to keep the same expression. AND I found out I look terribly serious when I paint!
So after a few failed attempts in the last year or so, today I finally decided to paint from a photo, and it has been MUCH easier.
I did this today in short and hurried time periods between kids activities and errands, a true daily painting, started and finished in an afternoon (with many breaks).
I have to say the breaks helped me getting back to it with fresh eyes, they actually made it easier.
Overall I like it.
Does it look like me? I'm not sure, I'll have to ask my family, they'll usually tell me exactly how it is. : )
