The last self portrait was about 6 months ago. I can see that this one was easier to do and seems more free and light in brushstrokes. This one was done using a photo. The next one in about six months will be using a mirror so it will give the feel of painting from life.

This painting was accepted for the Northern Ontario Art Association Juried Exhibition 2022 and received an honourable mention. I am beginning to get the Alla Prima style. I had been painting with my friend Linda every week for about 7 months and i would credit that support and encouragement for this achievement. This was painted in the midst of winter Jan 2022 when the kittens were about 8 months old. They kill anything that moves, moles, voles, mice, frogs, snakes, small rabbits and unfortunately a few birds.
