In March I made an effort to paint a “real” self-portrait. So far I had only painted some pictures that were indirect self-portraits, such as Phoenix in January.

Here are two self-portraits, that I painted with the help of photos.

The last picture might seem familiar. It is in a sense autobiographical as I had a book as a child, with the title “The Blue Horse” and on it was the painting of Franz Mark. My version of the horse is not blue but white. That’s why I called it the spirit of a famous horse. 😉
