Artist's description:

Many years ago (in 1993) I painted this self portrait when I was going through a phase of being infatuated with the amazing portrait paintings of the American artist Chuck Close. Although it's neither anywhere near the size of Close's works (his are huge) nor is it in the same style (his paintings are made up of thousands of tiny marks reminiscent of pointillism), it was, for me, quite large and quite a challenge. Unfortunately, like old photos, it reminds me how time has ravaged the face I see in the mirror today.
Anyway, I like it, and I decided to show it on Artfinder.
Although it was done in the traditional way of painting a self portrait from the image in a mirror, these days I do portraits from photographs.
Here comes the commercial: if you'd like a quote on a portrait of yourself - or anyone else - please email me a photo (via Artfinder) , with size details, and I'll get back to your right away.
