happy birthday to me

30"x40" oil
Ok. So it's my birthday. Well, when you throw in leap years and time changes technically it's not. Frankly, I no longer remember my age. I really do have to do the math from my birth year. Turns out I'm 43. Anyway, I did this larger piece with the intent of keeping the looseness of the smaller ones. I think this one turned out well. I stuck with the large brush for almost everything. Keeping to the 1/7th size brush relative to canvas size. Indeed, up close one wonders what they are looking at. From a distance it becomes apparent. Again I took the photo indoors. Left side is a bit lighter but not a bunch.
