I hope you have had the chance to catch the TV series "Portrait Artist Of the Year, Sky Arts."

If you are like me, you enjoy watching how artists create, and this unique program gives us a chance to see the portrait done in many styles and media. I enjoyed these shows so much that I have watched the recorded copies over and over, and learn something new at every viewing.

I cannot tell you the last time I did a painting of myself. Perhaps I have done maybe four in my lifetime, although one could argue that every painting is a bit of a self-portrait! Inspired by this show, I have recently made an attempt. Loved ones tell me it does look like me. Not satisfied, I think I will try another in the near future.
