Portrait of the Artist, Self Portrait

This is Stan Young, a 92 year-old professional artist and still creating expressive work. Here he is painting his self-portrait in oils. Stan has been a friend of ours for many years. He's really quite amazing for 92!
This is a super portrait, showing as it does three aspects of the artist and especially the portrait which looks very good indeed.

So nicely composed moving from the artist, to his reflection, to his interpretation of what he sees.

I love the triptych presentation of your shot, the artist, his reflection and his self-portrait.

A beautifully moving image for all the above reasons. I'm fascinated by Stan's hand and brush making a visual connection between himself, his portrait and the mirror. This bridge holds the 3 versions together in a graceful arc.

Superb angle to create the triptych so successfully! His portrait looks most interesting, especially to me!!

What can I say! Fantastic! Wish I could paint as well! He looks a great character and you have really caught him well - as he has himself!
