  1. thanks for enlightening me as to this artist (my scant knowledge is being gradually broadened with your ‘birthday’ posts) – I’ve left my comment on your expansive tribute

  2. What an interesting painting. It always amazes me how artists see and portray things.
    It also amazes me how many artists do self-portraits. Must be something they are compelled to do.
    Have you ever done yours, Marina?

Happy to hear your thoughts
