For me the painting can be interpreted a few ways: 1. I’ve died and gone to heaven, 2. I’ve arrived, 3. I am the angel of courage (Well, I guess those of you who know me well realize that using me and angel is the same phrase is blasphemy). Anyway, it’s still unfinished, as most of my paintings stay (Leonardo and I have that in common!). If you have any other interpretations of my self portrait, I would love to here them.
As I have said, painting in the town of Bottecelli, Leonardo, Michelangelo, etc, etc is intimidating, but inspiring.
