Facing Myself

It's about that time again...'psychological time'. I'm feeling as if it's almost time for my annual self-portrait. Last year's (not pictured) was a bit bloody. I think I'll not do that again, at least try not to. I've actually been itching to use this found object (piece of circuitry) that I found on the ground a few years back, but I couldn't quite get it together for last year's piece.

For some reason, my self-portraits are always super intense (and this isn't nearly the whole collection, I've got a huge bedroom wall full of them, and not all are hung up either. I should count them all one day, I'd be interested to know just how many I've done. hmm.)...

I don't do self portraits. I can't bring myself to draw/paint myself. Maybe it's because I don't like me, maybe it's because who would want to look at me. I even skipped that assignment in Art School and turned in a portrait of someone else for half credit. Hmmm, maybe there's some things I need to deal with ya think.
