I painted this image the morning after a ‘Twelfth Night’ party the Christmas of 1966 while living in Montego Bay, Jamaica. It’s a large 30″ × 44″ piece of Masonite board and I used interior quality latex house paint with added colorants. How I’ve hauled this and a few other painting around all these years I don’t really know. I never considered this ‘finished’, but its impossible to return after the years.
My full costume was as ‘Puck’, with red leotards, a bright striped cape over the white top and donkey ears (now represented abstractly in the painting.
Today what strikes me is the profound shift I’d experienced since ‘the boy in the basement’ self portrait from 3 to 5 years before. I was now an intense, and every day becoming more the nonconformist.
