Self Portrait in Red

Self Portrait in Red
Oil on cotton on MDF
This one was painted straight after throwing down my brushes in disgust at the last one. I wanted to do something loose and lively. Often I will grab a mirror - in this case a small shard of broken mirror - and confront it, almost tryign to surprise myself. Then I just paint. I dont know if it's a good painting or not, but I enjoyed it a lot more than the still life.
