This day was my son’s 7th birthday party. We had been cleaning and setting up the living room. We just had a small party with friends at our house. I had been taking some photos of the finished product and I decided to take a shot in front of my painting. This is an oil painting I did for a painting class and yes, it is a self-portrait. It’s one of my favorite paintings that I’ve done, ever!
