Self Portrait


Oil on Canvas

I am bipolar – mood swings have always been a part of my life, and so I wanted to show the dark and light side of my face. This painting is of me after I left Hollywood in the 60s and first began to know who I really was. I had started therapy but had not yet been diagnosed.
