Self Portrait by ronmonroe Self Portrait by ronmonroe
This is a self portrait. I got the idea from several drawings I have seen here on Deviant where they use the mirror glasses to add skylines and stuff. Also, we have all seen the Norman Rockwell self portrait: [link]
My wife took the reference photos and she and I are no photographers so I had to use what I had. :

Sometimes we just have to laugh at ourselves!
