June Paint Off in 2009)

This is International Self Portrait Day and like so many
artists who frequently do portraits -- I have been my
own subject many times.  Why do a self portrait? Because
you are available to sit for your portrait. My favourite is one
I did for a painting sharing idea called a June Paint Off, created
by the wonderful portrait painter David Lobenberg.

This painting hangs in my husband's office, and is an image
of me that he prizes, which is like so many things
about my husband, Steven, adorable and sweet.

Have a loving your life day.
