Self Portrait with Yellow Christ by Paul Gauguin                  Self Portrait with Self by Gary Nay

When I painted my “Self Portrait with Yellow Christ” more than 20 years ago, I had no idea that Gauguin had done the same in 1890. Funny how we both got the same idea but 100 years apart. Anyhow, when I saw this painting in Paris I was quite surprised and inspired. This led me to paint my “Self Portrait with Self”. I would like to see another artist take this one step further!
