I completely thought it was a photo and kept looking for the painting, until like Tammy I realized it was your painting. Incredible! Welcome! I can't wait to see what you do next.

Your work is always truly amazing, original and unique - the materials and textures superb......... I must confess to wondering though, you strike me as tall, but perhaps question the length of body from the chest up to the chin

Super, super job.......... what pastels do you use

Wow! I love all that is going on in this...the drawings within the painting, all the neat stuff on the wall and an awesome portrait of the artist. Thanks so much for showing us the real you!

Hi Brian, Now how can I compete with this? It's got whimsy, style, and great painting technique. As for the subject matter.... tee hee.

Love it!!! I trust we'll be seeing this in the Pastel 100 show and among the great masters....

Hurrah for self portraits! Barb

This is absolutely awesome!!!!!!. I too was looking for the painting but then had to do a double take. Incredible work - I love your perspective with the hand coming forward with that lean in your body and your expression. Keep it coming.

This has a very Norman Rockwell vibe about it and I mean that in the best possible way!

Thank you for supplying us with your link. I don’t quite know what else to say ……wonderful work!!! Your self portrait is quite amazing. :thumbsup:

Nothing less than what I would expect from you, of course!

I wonder how many times I've tried (with far, far less success than this) to paint myself using that slant-eyed sideways glance... I always skew the proportions. Did you record with a photo to do it, or were you looking in that mirror the whole time? I'd be curious as to your set-up, as I always am when you show work. I remember that you generously supplied photos of your sight-sizing demo, too. That really helped us all understand. So...any hints on how you did this for all of us? (Sorry--I'm just always so curious!)

This is stunning work, I love the sketch, of the sketch, of the sketch on the wall.

Totally off the wall!!

good gosh- i thought it WAS a reference photo- and the portrait was the tiny sketch held up!!! This is totally amazing!!! as wonderful as the figure and skin is done, the ENVELOPE in the background is my favorite part! And to think you can do this with pastels- sobbing....

Wow, this is so cool! I love that you put your own paintings into it, especially the one that made the Pastel Journal cover awhile back.

Oh, dear.... :o In my earlier post, I welcomed you to WC... :o I first saw that you were a new memeber, but, after reading through the thread, I see so many people who already know you... am feeling a bit embarrassed now :o . I had to come back to appologize and tell you that I went to your site and that each and every piece just blows me away!!!

So glad to see another piece on WC - this is astonishing work! I love the foreshortening in your arm - it looks like it is coming right out of the painting.

On another note, if you put your web link into your signature line, you won't have to enter it each time. Just go to your WC home page and click on signature in the left hand column and it will allow you to put in 3 links to web pages that display your work. If you have problems, let me know.
