self portrait variations

Hi Buddy..apologies for having been away for a while..I have been painting and will have many new pieces to share with you..for the moment here are some self portrait variations I've been painting. The original was from  the happiest photo of me I'd seen in a while..so I made some archival prints on the same watercolor paper the original was done in. After spending time painting extra life into myself I painted first a "Howdy Dooit" type sunbeam behind me with dyes and watercolor, then made a "Mickey Rodent" version..and finally a Tibetan influenced version, watercolor including one with pigment ground from Sleeping Beauty turquoise.
