Portrait of Roland and Self Portrait at 60

                                                                
                                                              
Roland
18x14 oil on linen
This is a portrait I just completed of my friend
Roland. It was painted in my studio this
December 2011, with three afternoon sittings.

Self Portrait at 60
24x18 oil on canvas
I had my 60th birthday earlier this month, November, and could not
resist painting another self image. The painting evolved
over a period of several days as I stood in front of the mirror
observing myself. Life and Painting are a great adventure. I
hope to get another 30 good years.
