Self Portrait 1: Pucker Up

On Monday I shared with you a traditional painting from back in January, the Uber Grotesque, today I have for you something a little more recent. This piece was completed early October and should better show what my current traditional work looks like and how much it has changed since January. Here is the first of a series of self portraits I am working on...
