Portrait of a Most Peculiar Woman
This is my favorite self portrait. I had a deaf friend in college that I met in a boarding house that I lived in. We would get into all kinds of great discussions at first but then we started to argue a lot about our philisophical ideas. When he didn't like to see what I had to say, he would turn away from me . One arguement we had, I got so mad that all I did was sit there in front of him not moving or signing or anything. He pleaded with me to rejoin the conversation. I went to my room and was inspired to create this portrait. I feel that it really expressed to him how I felt about how he cut me off from him.
