Color Stir

Look Color! I am terribly addicted to black and white but I made a special effort, in honor of spring, to stir up some color for self portrait number 2. Only 28 more to go before July.

I really like how it looks better the smaller it is.

And I'm not sad. I know I kind of look sad when I get focused and draw. I was listening to Wait Wait Don't Tell me so I'm seriously laughing inside. I attribute my inadvertent doleful expressions to my Northern European heritage.

Now I have to go paint cheerful cupcakes. Help me think happy thoughts.


  1. You do look a little doleful but a lovely painting just the same. Funny how paintings seem to be more effective when reduced in size.

  2. Lovely! I like the nice contrast of red shirt, cheek and spring green in background. Happy St. Patrick's day!

  3. This is really striking and lovely.
