Pulling faces again…

I caught it for an instant whilst painting this portrait. That look of surprise & vanity & curiosity that follows after ahaircut, when you peer cautiously into the mirror to see weither the hair cut is a catastrophe or not.But then I lost it, as I got more involved with satring into a mirror whilst trying to paint. Hence that ‘look’ that pervades all self portraits. The look of an artist at work, partly concentrating, partly pulling a face.

BTW, yes i am grumpy 😉 especially in the mornings….
