I probably have one more day on this one. It's very handy to paint yourself because you can easily check something just by looking in the mirror and you know right away if your not looking like yourself, maybe you don't even recognize yourself. It is a good way to practice portraits I must say because you can get any head position you want to practice or facial expression. The other thing I like is that you don't have to worry about what the sitter will say about the finished product. I'm sure someone already wrote a funny treatise on the subject.
I downloaded a count down calendar on my computer screen so I'll stay on track painting the portraits. I have 39 days to go.
