I will be taking a break from painting, and blogging for a month or so because I have a bad case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome which is so incredibly painful and it gets worse when I type or even paint! It's very upsetting because we don't realize how much we use our hands until the moment we "can't". Wearing a brace helps a little bit...any input is appreciated. I'm typing with my left hand right now..(not easy) Thank you so much for your comments.
I'll be back soon.

I don't know how you all paint with oils! lol...I had so many problems mixing colors. I decided to paint a self-portrait of one of my favorite Artist - Rembrandt. As you know, he painted so many self-portraits and since I love his style I used this as a study for my next oil portrait. The title is "Self portrait with a Gorget". I was curious to know what a Gorget was....it's the Armor that protects the throat and shoulders. I learn something every day!
