Maria's Description: This is one of those paintings that work like exorsism tools for me. Every now and then I do a self portrait that functions as a safety valve to release pressure.

this is a good one. I like the closeness and the warm to cool colors.
Thanks Fotini, I am quite happy with this one too. It was one morning's work that helped me face the rest of the week.You know I used to work with a restrained palete of the basic colours, ochre, burnt sienna, black and white. I used to think I should be able to do everything with those. God knows where that idea came from. Lately I felt a little rebel and got some more colours. Now I have three different reds to play with and four blues to mix with ombre which gives nice shadows or use plain for light next to yellow and ochre. Funny enough for me, I took black out. I make all my "black" with blue, red and burnt ombre. Phthalo blue was a revelation. I am desperately trying to move to my new studio before August. I hope life will be nice to me and let me paint finally.

I'm sure I agree with Nicoletta. Just one more thing, it's small but it seems monumental,where's the trick Maria??
as far as I know Nikoletta said that this looks very much like Maria. And I think she's absolutely right. It's a very interesting portrait as far as I can judge
