Self portrait in oil


"Measuring Me"
20"x16" Oil on Canvas
Beverly Gurganus

I have been painting for several years now, and I still have a hard time with putting my art "out there".  I'm very critical of my work especially when I compare it to other artists' works.  

I came upon a painting competition sponsored by Jerrysartarama and decided it was time to climb out of my safe cozy box.  I knew that placing in the competition was slim, but that wasn't my ultimate goal (it can take many tries and lots of growing to reach that level in competitions). My objective is to start getting my work entered and let time and experience do the rest.

Above is my entry in the Jerrysartarama self portrait competition for 2015.  Now you all know what I look like when I'm in full concentration while painting.  😀
