The Rag-a-Muffin by L. Martel

This is a 5″ x 7″ oil on canvas board in its early stages. It is a classical “selfie” –  “me” at the age of about 3 or 4 years. Working on such a small area makes it difficult to get the facial expression right. I’m eating a cookie and it’s probably my mother who took the photo so I look to be offering her some of my cookie. In the photo I have a little more of a lean so it really does look like I’m offering it to the person taking the photo.

    • Thank you nmartinez1938. I haven’t got it quite right yet but it’s coming along. It’s extremely difficult working on that size of canvas.


  1. Lovely work Leslie! I like those colours and the way that you placed the child (yourself) in one corner shows the smallness of the figure in comparison with the rest of the large, adult world…great way to evoke that feeling. All the best to you,
