I remember once someone telling me that the old masters used to do self portraits as a way of saying "Hey! Look how good I am! this painting of me actually looks like me", in a much more refined way of course. I couldnt help but think of that painting this. Self portraits are intrinsicly self reflective. You end up seeing a lot more of yourself than you intend on. I've always found portraits to be an exploration of the person i'm painting and i really felt that with this. It was fascinating.
