Self Portrait, January 2009

24˝ x 24˝ Acrylic on wood

It was a late night in the studio -deciding to create a self portrait- I started painting with colors which were more relitive to the way I felt. About 45 minutes later I was finished. I feel that the way that this portrait was created is the most exciting part. The piece was carried out with no mirror to reference, no preliminary sketches on paper or the wood; no grid and/or reference pictures.

Signed and dated on the back. Comes complete with backing

Soon avaliable in shop.
