Painter Seamus Wray has started a series of paintings of himself painting paintings of himself. He started with the first one above and is currently on his fifth iteration:


I'm not sure how much deeper he can go. Also, that's what she said. Also, I hope he continues doing these for as long as his outfit will allow.

Whee!

You can check out his entire progression on his Instagram, which I've also included after the jump.
