I received many requests to view the melted frame but alas it's in the trash. ;-[
Yesterday I decided to try a couple things I've wanted to do for a long time. First, I wanted to paint a painting in a day like so many of my talented new friends. Second, I wanted to do a self portrait. To save a day I did both at once.
6"w x 8"h
Oil on stretched Canvas
I made the background really dark because I wanted a self portrait to use as a profile picture. I've noticed that pictures of high contrast stand out the best. Watch for my yellow rose to be exchanged for this painting. I'll have to depend on those who know me to tell me if I've made the painting realistic. I noticed my glasses are crooked, that's normal :-).
