  • This is my very first self-portrait, so this is a World Premier folks! :) Huge thanks to all the wonderful artists here on RB who gave me the courage to finally paint one!! And I had lots fun & satisfaction too!!!

This is just me closing or squinting one of my eyes during live painting or drawing LOL!

    Excellent work, did anyone ever tell you look like Chris Rock or even Eddie Murphy…just a little???

  • LOL! As a matter of fact, not yet but, I’ve so far been likened to ‘Buster Ryhmes’. So I’m definitely adding these ones to the list, thank you for the wonderful comment & fave *:D

    A wonderful portrait and painting. I love the expression – feels good!

  • Thanks Ken, I think it was the initial fear then, courage to do it, & finally the realization & elation that I could do it that sparked the creative frenzy for me – yes, it felt VERY GOOD! :)
