Juvenalia: Self Portrait with Empty Eyes 3
This is another in the series of self portraits with empty eyes from 1964 or maybe even 1963. Sometimes I liked to imagine I was an Indian (Native American) and that my hair was black with bluish highlights. None of these pictures really look like me. As I mentioned in other posts, they were more an illustration of mood and spiritual state then physical self. This one is tempera on black construction paper and was quite damaged by age and moisture (from the basement at my parents' house). If this one had a name, I don't remember it, and it wasn't labelled.
