Portrait Of Dale

Portrait Of Dale
Oil on gessoed board
I really enjoy painting portraits but it is always difficult getting someone who is prepared to sit. This is one very practicle reason why I paint so many self portraits. My very supportive partner Dale Copeland kindly took some time out from her hectic schedule to sit for this one. I was happy with it as a painting, however it is not very flattering. Perhaps that is why so few people are willing to sit for me...? I just can't do "pretty", no matter how I try.
