Old time Selfie & In good company!

Not really sure why I decided to do this.  Perhaps it was encouragement from friends and fellow artists that have done it.  Perhaps it was seeing the self portrait show at the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh!  For me the question was should I wait until I become a better painter or do it now before I get wrinkles!  Ha!  I'm not finished yet but thought I'd share with you.  Of course I had to be in silk my favorite thing to paint!
