Self Portrait Reading

oil on panel

30” x 36”

I often read when I eat dinner alone .  Here  you can imagine I will continue painting in a moment.  I can  paint for six hours straight without realizing the time has gone by.  The geraniums in the back have been rescued from the frost.  The painting is a favorite landscape of mine of a tree painted along the Huron River one summer afternoon.
