day 2 - morning painting

I was going to paint this same subject abstractly this afternoon, but realized I really don't want to paint in an abstract way, much as I admire the work of a number of painters who do.  So I think I am going to do an hour long self portrait this afternoon using the little dabs of paint left on my palette from this morning. I got that idea from the artist Ben Hope who paints in an almost pyrotechnic way with the Dulwich Art Group. He said his motto is "paint quick, think slow" which I have to rephrase to myself as "paint quickly, think slowly".
