Self portrait 1

Self portrait I

There was a long holiday weekend in Hong Kong recently and both of my regular models were out of town. It was a good opportunity to make a start on a series of self portraits.  I've had this project in mind for some time and the stack of same size canvases have been primed but gathering dust in a corner. Perhaps close scrutiny of oneself is not always that welcome and so becomes easy to put off.

Anyway here's the first, prosaically named Self portrait I. On the site it looks large in relation to the other work, but in fact it's quite tiny, just 25.5cm square. An introspective exchange, a mirror image, a face to the world.
