The title is "My Vanity" representing both my personality flaw and the physical surface where I apply make-up. The viewer may see only my reflection in the mirror, which represents how I choose to view myself and not my real face. My reflection doesn't show the wrinkles, sags, and spots that have developed with time and advanced age. If you look closely, you'll see a fly on the mirror base. 18th Century paintings used the fly
as a symbol for death, which is my future. Oil on panel.
