A portrait a day
August 1, 2013 3:00-4:00pm
A week ago I gave myself the challenge to paint my self portrait at least once every day, indefinitely. Mostly I spend 60 to 90 minutes on each painting. The longest I've sat so far is two hours. I gave myself this project because this a way I can stay focused on a single idea amidst my internalized swirl of anxiety.
I'm hoping this project will serve as a journal of my technical evolution, while documenting my own physical evolution - or at least how I choose to represent myself in a painting.
The portrait pictured here is my seventh so far and probably the first that I am somewhat pleased with.
Stay tuned for more portraits in the future.
