Self Portrait

This painting is a self portrait. I have painted my family as they are in the Chinese animal Zodiac in our backyard. There is very fine detailing and texture on the grass while the figures are done with a blotting style but still less paint. Each figure also wears something that shows who that person is, in one simple motion. The wooden frame was painted with three different types of brown to cause an invisible space between the painting and the viewer.

Medium: oil on gesoed canvas
Size: 18 inches by 22 inches
