Time travel, pt. 2

(*Note: This was supposed to have been put up last night (Wed. 4.21.10) but due to internet connection hiccups, I had to wait until this morning to post.)

Continuing with yesterday's theme of artistic time-travel, here are a couple of self portraits I did as a student, circa 1992-'93. They pretty much speak for themselves. The second painting was the result of lessons learned from the first.

I'm glad that I kept these works, because like the images I posted yesterday, it's nice to be able to see where I've been. On the flip side, there's that twinge of "ugh, bad student work" that I get in the pit of my stomach when I look at them. Then again, looking back, I'm still proud of having completed these assignments, because it led to more discoveries down the road, along with a decent grade in my painting class.
