Self Portrait by Ginny Schmidt

Currently unavailable for purchase

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.

My bio can be found on my profile page, where it’s always been.
