I paint a self portrait in oils every year, sometimes more when using myself as model and in other media.

Self Portrait through video chat (25), 2010, oils on canvas, 24×18 in. Led eventually to Teleportraiture.
Self-Portrait as Painting. Taking the traditional allegorical role in reference to Artemisia Gentilesci but with many self-insulting features. The inscription above the head reads “No day without a line” (these days, a fine art lifestyle to which I perversely or lazily don’t adhere) and below, reflected, “Imitation”, my primary and perhaps only artistic skill. Oils on linen, 32″x42″
Daisy X. Mackinac. My self-portrait entry in my series of role-playing portraits. Oils on canvas, 2’x4′.
Self-portrait at 19. Oil on elliptical canvas, 16″x20″.
