Self-Portrait #2
Self-Portrait #2 (03-09) Acrylic on canvas.

This is the style I was doing in the '70s after Vietnam. Pure Expressionism (Art Brut?) I went back to Vietnam in 1992.. We went to a Montegard village. They children said I had no eyes. I should have stopped the painting before I got to redoing the eyes for the umpteenth time.

I "borrowed" the mouth from Matt Sesow, one of my favorite Art Brut (if that is correct) artist. I should have stopped before I cheated. But, there it is.
