A quick iPad portrait

(Not a good likeness --
but hey!) 

I am working away at my painting -- a scene inside a café.
It is a long, long and intense process, and since I've been
planning a series on this theme, it has made me realize that
the rest of it, will be much more focused, and less wide

Yesterday the wonderful artist Harry Stooshinoff sent 
out a series of self portraits to his subscribers.  They are
quite amazing, and inspired me to do a self-portrait
on my iPad to show you today -- knowing full well, that
the piece I'm working on would not be ready.

And so it goes.

Have a loving your life day.

Love your self portrait ❣️❣️❣️ we’re you look g at yourself or working with a photo? I tried working from a mirror, so difficult to get the posture back every time, so used both.

Hi Evelyn,

I loved your last portrait. I was working from a mirror for this one.
It is pretty rough, but I had fun making it.
