:clap: Bravo Anonymous on your oil painting self portrait! It is well done. The only comment I have is what is the striped shape behind the head? Is it a shirt? Maybe I would connect that shape to the top of the canvas, or include a line drawing of a wire coat hanger from the top...something to show that it is a bedroom of a woman. Just IMHO. A great one here and it is your 4th! Super work! :cat:

Well, the whole thing started as a blind contour, and developed into a painting from there. The initial plan was to leave part of the painting a bit undeveloped, as the whole style is painterly and quirky, anyway. But in this case, it doesn't really lend to the painting, I think. The striped part was a bed frame that I never painted. But it's hard to tell that it's a bed frame, anyway. I've had conflicting suggestions on whether or not to paint it. I think I'm going to develop the rest of the painting, anyway, because obviously it's difficult to tell what it is.

I appreciate your feedback so much. Thank you for taking the time to help me! You have been great.
