My teenaged daughter caught in a pose, multitasking between laptop and TV!
I worked a wee bit more on this painting after I clicked the photo but am lazy to click another photo!

Self Portrait- Pretense

Acrylic on Canvas Sheet-A2 size

No I did not go back to my half finished painting . Instead I did this.When you want to paint faces and don't have a model, what's better than painting yourself in one of your moods? 

Who knows your moods better than yourself. I have so many moods that i can paint myself in. It will actually keep me busy for a month at least! I paintagain!

It's been ages since I last painted!. My painting stuff is wrapped away and put into some bags. I don't know if that can be an excuse, but that is one of the reasons why I hadn't painted.
This evening, I vow to look for the paints, fish out the brushes and work on the long starved oil painting of the woman in the forest!

Sometimes, it so happens that the more you 'don't; do a thing, the more you do not do it, just as the more you do something, the more you want to do it! All my past efforts to paint just because I have to get back into the mode hadn't worked. So now I actually feel the paints beckoning me, and can smell those oils and the turpentine..hey.. I suddenly cant wait to spread the butter like oils!
So let me start the 'paintagain' project.
