this is why I haven't written


Self-portait.
Oil on canvas (16x20).
2009
Keep in mind that I am a trained abstract artist (a l'ecole "refus global" ie Concordia University).
I personally don't like it but I keep it because it's a rarity (so not my style).
I rarely paint anything from life and when I do it's usually expressive. With few exceptions, I never paint people (because I can't).
Also, I'm not good with cameras and light settings - the original painting is not so dark.
come to think of it, I have to fix things... the art teacher in me hates it.
