This is a great self-portrait and is loaded with symbolism. I love the deconstructed crown of thorns that becomes the necklace. Apparently, the dead hummingbird is a lucky charm and the black cat represents bad luck. Oh look isn’t that a pet monkey? Yes it is! Most great artists seem to have one. I’m going to the pet store this weekend.

Al Rutgers:

Please name him George – if it’s a boy – though George is a fine woman’s name as well. Any famous women artists named George?
