Hi Sumathi, Thanks for

Hi Sumathi, Thanks for taking a look. Yes, this is a painting that I did a couple years ago. It's acrylic paint on canvas. I just dabble, so it's quite crude. This one came about while I was taking a course on The Shadow. I've always been fascinated with self-portraits, even though I'm quite unskilled. "But it's ok," I tell myself. So, strangely, this started out as a self-portrait of sorts--eek! but from my mind, not looking into a mirror and well, when I got into it, I realized it was taking a different direction. When complete, I felt as though this was a good reminder of my own shadow side and propped it up on my fireplace at the time and kept it in sight, so that I would be face to face with that dark aspect that is within me--within all of us. I needed to give it it's own space, but a part of me--and to keep it in front of me so to speak.
