I hadn't seen this one before. I know the feeling, and it is very well portrayed here.

I've been thinking lately a lot about the effect of similar feelings and Bipolar disorder in general on my work. Actually, I think the disorder improves my work, not that i'm really fond of it, i'd much rather get rid of it altogether, but at least it's good for something.

What an emotionally heart wrenching this is. It pains me to think of you in times of such torment and sorrow Cher. You're such a sweet person. Thanks for sharing your feelings and opening up a side of yourself that must be very difficult to convey. :hug:s

Thank you so much, Larry. It was not a great time for me. So I tried to convey how I was feeling as best as I could. I had to work off a picture I took of myself.
I have gone back and forth as to taking this out of my gallery just because I don't like seeing it. To much vulnerability?
Thank you so much my friend. Your comment means so much to me on this piece :hug:

It was during one of my low times. Trying to stare at a picture of yourself while your painting. I guess in some ways it was therapeutic.

Yes you are right, and its actually a good exercise using yourself, after all know one knows you better and I think its goes for any choocen media.
Hence I have done some mono portraits of myself :-)
