Juvenalia: Self Portrait at about 20 (Paint by numbers--NOT!)

When I was about 20, I did this self portrait. It doesn't look anything like what I looked like physically, but gives you an idea of how I felt emotionally and spiritually at the time.

An odd thing is that I must have painted it on a paint by numbers canvas, because if you look closely, you can see the paint by numbers lines in the cheeks and elsewhere. (I did NOT paint this by numbers.)

It is also damaged from being stored in a wet basement. At some point, I may make some efforts to recover it.

I have been away a LONG time and off-line (unable to access the internet) and now that I have returned, I am swamped! It will be a while before I can post regularly!
