Selfie, Penny the Painter, Penny Lee StewArt

This large 16 x 20 framed "Self Portrait" was done looking into a mirror.  I painted it several years ago during an art class, and people said it looked like me, but older.  Well, I think my face has caught up to the age in the portrait by now!  I painted an easel in the background because I like portraits with artifacts that tell a story.  The blue shirt has paint on it because I wipe my brushes on my shoulder, always have.  LOL.  In the photo below the painting, I am wearing the same shirt.  I added the turtleneck to cover up my wrinkles.

  1. A beautiful painting of you, Penny and I see from the picture, that the painting is very like you. You have an artistic espression in both. Love it.

  2. Oh Penny I love it... both the wonderful one of you in a paint shirt and the selfie...with the paint on the shoulder....I have several towels I always wipe my brushes on... and the majority of my night shirts have paint on them!

  4. Penny, this is great, and I like the easel in the background. I know a lot of people who wear a shirt for painting and wipe their brushes on it. I do it too...but by accident. lol
