"Self Portrait at 50", 16x20, oil on linen
I started painting this a while back for a self-portrait competition. Eventually, I gave up on the competition and put the painting away. Today I took it out and worked on it for awhile, and I think it came out as a pretty good likeness in the end.
I was wearing way too much make-up for a 50 year old, but at least I was having a good hair day. Here's the reference photo that I used, which was shot in the porch of my home in Chester Springs back in 2002:
Boy, I wish I was still 112 pounds!
