"Self Portrait, Dec. 1979"
This is far from being my first self portrait, but it's the earliest that I have photographed and on my website. It belongs to my great friend Jim Alley, who started collecting my paintings as soon as I got back to Santa Barbara from Boston. I like the wild hair, big beard, and wildly intense stare. I had forgotten about this one until I ran into it at Jim's house around 2010 or so.
