Portrait of an artist painting himself

Due to bad weather, I decided to do another selfie. 
Well, I wish I had a decent studio space. The only minor that is big enough to use for painting is in a bathroom. Setting up my easel over the toilet seat, there's no space to step back.... 

This time, I incorporated a canvas board to suggest that I am actually painting myself. 
I found it very challenging to do eyes. Think about it. I should be looking at the canvas when painting. The moment I look at the mirror to get that image, it disappears, because, well, I am looking at the mirror. Got it?
I spent 3 hours. 

Oil on board. 12x16 in. 

I spent 3 hours.
