Self Portrait #20, 2005, oil on canvas, 48 x 64 inches

This painting was part of a series of self-portraits I did from 2003 -2007. I was dealing with being an artist in my 60's, of being in my studio surrounded by my work, of looking back with pride, regrets, vulnerabilities, fulfilled and unfulfilled hopes and the joy that painting gives me.
