Forgotten Art

This is an old self portrait, I had completely forgotten about it. I just happened to come across it while I was cleaning out some boxes in the basement. I painted it about eight years ago.

I was trying to copy a photo, taken of me in a hotel room. In the photo, my mouth is still swollen from having four wisdom teeth pulled the week before. I can't remember what town we were in, but it was about ten hours NW of Flagstaff.

We checked into the hotel and I went for a walk while she took a bath. On the walk I dropped five dollars into a slot machine and won fifty. She snapped this picture of me right after my walk, just before I took a bath.

Here's the original photo.

Do you still have your wisdom teeth? Do you want to leave me some love?


  • nope. no wisdom teeth. (which might explain a few stupid decisions i've made.)

  • same with me! only i never had any to start with. i think it's because i'm more evolved. (which doesn't explain any of the stupid decisions i've made...)

  • I too was born without any wisdom teeth. I have always said that it was because I am more evolved, but it could be due to something else. I'm betting on aliens.

    That's a cool self-portrait. At first I was going to say that it's a little more scary looking than you are in person, but then I remembered all the crappy hotel rooms I shared with you and yes, there were many mornings you looked a lot like that. Like the morning in Vermillion when I woke up to find D. passed out on the cot with his jeans around his ankles and a bathroom full of vomit. We could blame that on the low-priced beer and Jaeger, but again, I'm putting all my money on the aliens. :-)

  • catnapping: Heh, heh.
    Maybe if we lost teeth every time we did something really, stupid, humans would stop being so stupid.
    Or we would all have dentures.

    patsypalooza: Hmm... a more evolved what? :-)

    steve: So, you're finally going to admit to the existence of aliens! Next thing you know, you'll be planning your day by what it says in your horoscope.

    patsypalooza: Yep.
    Holy Shit! There's a lake?!
    And why would anyone think, "Yeah. let's go camping in SD"?
    I'm beginning to suspect that you are a more evolved alien!

    the tart: Just me and my hairdresser. :-)
