My July Challenge

ME 2016, 8x6" oil on Arches Oil Paper, Diane Mannion

Keeping Up!

Self-portraits are never easy, at least for me.  What was I thinking?  This was the most difficult painting so far this month.  I tried to be kind and not copy every hard-earned wrinkle.  At least it will be useful for a new FB image.  Celebrated a major birthday while painting this and I'm not telling which.  I think it's a nice portrait even if it is me.
 And only one painting behind before the end of the month!

 SHADOW, 6X8" oil on canvas, Diane Mannion
Portrait of my standard poodle, a big beauty and greatest dog ever!
DRAGON FRUIT, 6X8" oil, Diane Mannion
