Self-portrait of an Artist in His Twenties (1 of 3)

Enlarge image

This pointilistic ink on paper self-portrait pose was chosen for its far-reaching look. If I recall correctly, I was sitting on the sofa looking toward a painting on the living room wall, probably 1973-74. It was inked in 1981 and later published in the Collected Poetry of Thomas A. Ekkens—Early Works.
