Quarter Self Portrait

Quarter Self Portrait
 Oil on Ceramic Tile

Well... you don't get the whole thing for this price.  I hate it when people visit my studio unannounced and demand to see The Paintings. When I point out that they are surrounded by paintings they crack jokes about them being small etc... and "have you got any bigger ones"? My reaction is to want to paint even smaller paintings. One day they may well disappear entirely.  I also wanted to try out painting on these little ceramic tiles. I primed it with the clear GAC medium and it seemed to work quite well. I spent two sessions on this one. The smaller ones don't necessarily take less time, you just use smaller brushes.
