On my other blog I was talking about the art of loving yourself. Now by that I did not mean thinking you were the most wonderful thing since sliced bread, I meant simply being aware of your inner worth and being.
To be able to do a good self portrait, I think, takes an amazing depth of honesty. It is, in my humble opinion the most difficult thing to do.
I have, as you know painted others, some of them I am pleased to have done. I have also painted myself and I am not so pleased with that.
I wonder if I will ever try again.
The reason I ask this of myself is because I was asked by a family member yesterday if and when I was going to make a better portrait than the one I have already done.
I am aware that I did not make a good job of this first attempt. Because of that I am a bit wary of going there a second time.
Can those of you who have done a self portrait offer any guidance?
I am also aware that I would never hang such a painting. There seems to be something not right about hanging your own picture .
Now if I had children still small and living at home this sure would keep them well away from the fireplace.
