100th post: mini self-portrait

Look at that, 100 posts. Sweet! Anyway, I banged this bad Larry out in a couple hours for Art House Coop's "Self-Portrait Project" the day before I mailed it out, which just so happened to be the day before it was due :) Thankfully the painting gods showed me their kindness and allowed the paint to dry completely. It was fun working at such a small scale, 4" x 4", and great fun to not be painstakingly meticulous. It isn't one of my most well-rendered self-portraits, but it definitely captures my personality a bit more than the others. Tomorrow I'll post some sketches I've been playing around with and also a finished still-life that I happen to fancy as quite an accomplishment.
