Self-portrait painting is a good recipe for frustration!
Self-portrait #15 (since 2007).
I paint another self-portrait. As usual, there are parts I love about it (this time, the composition and the concept, which I think were influenced by all the paintings I’ve been looking at), but I’m generally dissatisfied. Again!
Another round of self-portraits.
I had an idea but it didn’t come out well. Here’s the attempt.
I pose for myself and for Erik, and enjoy seeing myself translated into art.
Other people’s recent remarks have revived my fear of not being liked… but I’m living with it and learning from it, and even painting from it.
