Self-Portrait, Exhausted

72. Self-Portrait, Tired 2010 oil on canvas 16x12" collection of the artist

This was the sight I saw one night after a particularly exhausting day taking care of family needs.

Anyone with children knows this feeling. I just happened to catch myself looking this way in the mirror as I was brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed. I decided to try to paint only that which was essential; nothing else.
