2 color silkscreen portrait

it's a self portrait, apropriate for the mood I'm in. Not doing much actual art right now,but plenty of contemplation and reflection as I organize much of my art. (this potrait is from either 1994 or 1995) Looking back is kind of fun. I can see how I've grown both as an artist and as a person. The exceptionally interesting thing is what common threads exist throughout the past decade. I suppose that is the legacy of life; those things to which we return; the subjects that either haunt us or make us feel good. Obsession has such an ugly connotation, but by flushing out the pejoratives we find that obsession is merely a repetition, a focus; one that is hopefully a companion to love (and not a substitute)
