SELF-PORTRAIT VI

 

It’s my habit - some say my affectation - when painting, to tuck a red spotted handkerchief in my waistband to use as a rag to wipe brushes on. Painting days have come to be known as red spotty days. I’ve been through a lot of red spotties down the years and never looked at one of them. Then one day, there it was on the worktop catching the sunlight, almost posing. The painting is on a gessoed ply-board panel.
