Self Portrait 11-10-14

Here is the second small painting of the morning. I haven't done a self portrait in a while. I like this one, seems to get the moment across. The good thing with using myself as a model is that my feelings don't get hurt when I paint honestly.

Painting #1000 - Philadelphia

I started painting in 2008, and quickly set up a blog to track my progress. With a blog you can add tags to help organize and easily find things. One of my tags is "oil." If I post an oil painting I will tag it with "oil", as this was an easy way for me to see how many paintings I've done. There have been many that didn't make it back to the car from the field, and there have been many that got wiped in the studio,, so the oil tag doesn't count everything, just those I thought were worth posting at the time.

This painting is number 1,000 with the oil tag. Thanks for following along with me on this journey.
