Self portrait at a Ted Burn Workshop

I'm a semi retired chemist and have been trying to draw or paint over the last 7 years… but most work is too stiff… almost corpse like.  However, after taking the above workshop… things look alive and actually painterly.  All artists at the workshop were kindly and wife was objective about a few fixes.  Objective critiques and advice to improve are welcome.  Thanks Ted and Kathy for the workshop.
