SELF PORTRAIT WITH HAND ON HEAD
Oil on Canvas
68 cm h x 53 cm w
I painted myself using a mirror placed on the easel ledge next to the canvas.
Whilst the hand on head gesture can often be interpreted as one of exasperation, in this depiction, it seems to indicate more a sense of reflection and taking stock.
