from the artist:
a selfie is not so easy because you think you know your
own face so well, but perhaps you don't.
I had several tries for this one (see the
small pictures below). I painted the first one in dim
light using a tiny mirror. It was very gray and I didn't
like it much so I painted over it in green.
Six months later I found the canvas and
started again, this time from a photo.
Then I looked in a larger mirror in better
light and the painting started to look like me. It morphed,
then morphed again and now it really does look like me.
Paintings from a mirror are what I see,
which is the mirror image of what everyone else sees.
