This self portrait is an exploration of a serious illness overcome, and how it affected me on a personal and artistic level. I wanted to convey a feeling of calm, but stubborn steadfastness, isolation, yet strength. The self exploration one experiences with illness has many parallels with ones life as an artist. The choice of a winter setting seemed to enhance the introspective mood of the picture.  The painting is representational, but not completely realist in style. I tried to subordinate parts of the picture by degrees of finish, to draw attention to the subject.
