I read all the gushing about this work and Ihad to jump in. IS this a self portrait after too much tequilla. Or is that sound I hear NOlde spinning in his grave. What I see here is a competent, professional self portrait in the expressionist style. NObodyis reinventing the wheel here. Teh diescions are more illustrative than painterly. I see muddy moments and bad color desicions, but heh its better than I could do so don´t sweat the criticism. everybodies got one.
