This painting is 20 x 16-inches and is oil on canvas. I titled it, "Thinking of Dad". I just did this painting two days ago, in response to the death of my father. He passed away on Feb. 27, 2011, at the age of 89. I don't have a decent photo to do a proper memorial portrait of him, so this is something of a twist on that idea
Since his passing, it's not unusual during quiet moments of the day, to find myself drifting back to memories of him. Four days ago, when snapping out of one of those moments, I decided to grab my camera and take my picture in the pose as best I could re-create it.
Please share your self portraits with the rest of us..... Even the ones you have thrown in the back of your closet or in your basement. Seeing each others' self portraits will be not only entertaining, but hopefully we can learn something from each other. Sorry, no photographs, no digital artwork. Only drawings and paintings.
