About this painting
One of a series of self-portraits created to explore the idea of a common visual theme. I wanted to paint a portrait several times, from the same view, lighting, and angle, but experimenting with different painting styles and genres to see how this image can be pushed into different moods, and as technical and imaginative showcase; like the variations on a theme in music such as Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, or Elgar's Enigma Variations.

This was a simple idea, perhaps somewhat like Magritte. The result is distant and dreamy.
