Marking the Years
Every year I try to do a self-portrait a la Rembrandt. Rembrandt created a LOT of self-portraits because it turns out you are the model that is always available when you want to practice.
As we age the product is not always what we would want but it's still an exercise in creating a likeness.
This painting is small- 8"x 10". For some unknown reason I thought a brick wall would look nice behind me.
