Self obsessed selfie


So if I comment am I adding to the problem? I'll risk it. A wonderful portrait Mark capturing a great expression.

Very very clever and well said

Your comments are quite right and the painting has been executed with the conviction of your thoughts which are the building blocks of all art. A very good painting all round...

Very good

Super perspective Mark and a wonderful portrait.

Excellent selfie and I totally agree with your statement.

Excellent, would make a great entry for PAOTY! Idea?

Fab pic...made me laugh.

That’s so true Mark. The number of young women ( and some men) you see preening themselves as they walk along looking into their phones is rather strange and alarming. I don’t think all these plumped up faces and bottoms etc will look the same as they start to age and gravitates downwards. Love the self portrait? A great painting in all aspects!

Think you need some lip filler Mark😉

Agree with you wholeheartedly Mark and a cracking piece of art in the process.

You conveyed it well, Mark.

Beautiful work, Mark!

Fantastic portrait and composition

A great portrait Mark- and I recognise the pose as I see it so much in young people! 😂

Hang on Studio Wall

With this self portrait i wanted to convey how social media is turning everyone into narcissists, constantly craving adoration and validation.
