I for one will not tire of your self-portraits, in fact ... more, more more! Is the hat from TeAnne? What's your address, I've gotta hat for you ... if you'll do another self-portrait in it!

You are still a cutie Al! I am not sure about that hat though, kind of makes you look like a leprechaun. Of course you know we have enough of that species around here, lol.:D :evil: :angel:

Al, your self-portraits are always a treat. I like the colors and loose brushwork in the background and the shirt. For a second I thought it was done on yupo.:)

LOL Mary!! Now we have two Leprechans hangin in this forum. :D

Actually Al, I like the hat!! And your self-portrait is very good. You kind of have an Eric Clapton look about you in this one. Maybe it's the glasses? Anyway, great portrait!!:clap: :clap: :clap:

you look kind of preoccuppied in this one Al....puts a jittery spin to it. cool!! I like it.

spot of red near your nose is a wee bit distracting....but doesn't take away from the portrait.

I really like the mouth, cheek bones and eyes with this attempt.

It's nice, Al--both the portrait and the hat :) You look a bit worried though..

I was wondering a bit where the light was coming from? I don't think it matters in this portrait at all, but between the light on the face and the hat, I am still not sure....

Eric Clapton look, eh? Now I'm getting jealous.
:D

Seriously though, each of your self portraits shows a lot of improvement. Keep up the good work.
