Self Portrait

It has been a while since I’ve done a self portrait and today I wanted to get some time in painting from life considering the past few days I have been using photos exclusively.

I ended up getting the drawing of my head incorrect. The proportions in the painting are a bit taller than my head really is. Although I did have some fun and success with different color combinations.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
