self portrait 2012

11"x14" oil/linen panel
So here is  a new self portrait in 2012. I did this one without my glasses on. I'm nearly blind so it was interesting. I could see the canvas but the palette was unrecognizable. I'm happy to keep the looseness of the late sketches and still find form and "detail". I'm quite fond of artists renderings of themselves so I continue the task. It's interesting when a lot of artists go abstract their self portraits are still fairly recognizable. At any this how I look ? Don't know and don't care..............I quit when it feels like a painting..........
tweaked version w/glasses on
