Self Portrait - 12 x 12 inches - Oil on canvas - SOLD

First off, who, other than maybe my mother, would want to buy this painting! It's been hanging on the wall opposite my desk and it is a bit startling to look up and see yourself staring at yourself. In any case, officially, this is painting #50...the last 12 x 12 for my upcoming solo show, "Reflections on Fifty", which opens one month from today. It's been a great journey and I've learned a lot along the way. But, don't despair, this blog will continue with more paintings so stay tuned. To those who emailed and posted comments...thanks and keep 'em coming!

I have SUCH a talented sister. I love so many paintings I can't list them all. I am looking forward to the show and seeing the three (so far)that I have on reserve. You do great work!
Love

I especially love the way you've done your nose!!
I don't know you... only through your blog, so I have no idea what you look like, but... you look nice!!!
And the eyes tell it all, don't they?

Good luck on your solo show!!

Laurie, this is so funny - your wording is hilarious - anyhow, congratulations on painting #50 - it looks great - OH! And when your self portrait stares at you, the only proper thing to do is STARE BACK!!!
