Artist's Description

Yes, it’s me in halloween makeup, but frankly it is very reflective of my self image…defiantly depressed.

I wrote the above when I first posted this image. It has been some years now, and I have matured a bit (FINally, going on 69) since then and am no longer quite so depressed. Therapy and a little prozac go along way. Ennyhoo, I believe that the photo is still a great self portrait, with very little post processing, as the hair and makeup were done in black and white, with just a little purple eye shadow.

The emotion that is conveyed here, I feel, is an enduring sadness … even though we work through it and carry on, it is always part behind the surface, behind the face we put on to go about day to day.
