At first glance I thought it was Ann Boleyn, with the way you are dressed as well as the hair. (Looks like it from one of the movies I've watched. The other Boleyn girl I think it is?) Verrry pretty. I like it. :)

Very renaissance and very beautiful. Are you involved in the SCA by any chance?

I concur that tempera is a challenge and you have to understand how the colors mix together. If you're not careful you end up with muddy colors. Kudos to you for your expert handling of the media.

This is supurlative! Not just artistically, but sartorially. Of course your skills are elite, but the painting was worth doing; interesting. It is a wonderful counterpoint to the traditional, or the American Primitive portrait styles. If I could pull off wearing that dress I might do another self portrait... (Guess thats why I'm a goth, interesting clothes-for a guy). BTW I love the cat! Looks about like my erstwhile pet, Fang. Minus the fangs; they hung down past his chin. Thank you for inspiring me! Best of luck, Tony
