Lost Patience

May 20, 2020

Self Portrait was taken during COVID - 19 Isolation. This is a baroque inspired portrait, created to look painterly. I am greatly inspired by the old masters and thought I would capture the feeling of longing to return back to our old normal, during this modern day plague.

I am closest to this one, of the three. It seems to be the theme of our times. Nice work, again, Mary.

Its so relatable right? I know I surely have felt this way recently. Thank you for checking it out Darin.

Beautiful work. I like those red accents.

Thank you. I choose the red to give the image a hint of vibrancy and life.

Very cool, but I would have gone even starker on the lighting- more chiaroscuro; particularly on the face. Colors are perfect.
