Comments: This image is my self-portrait of how I feel now. I've been depressed, sad, heartbroken, and lonely over the loss of a long time companion and those feelings ended in my drawings. I also had a hard time in the making of these prints. The carving went okay with some minor glitches, but the printing did not go well. This is not my usual technique of printmaking. I'm sorry that almost every print has blemishes and problems. I really tried hard, it seems that every print has different issues. After some reflection, I think these prints truly reflect my state of being. I've been neglectful and not taking care of myself and it probably shows. Hopefully, I've worked through some of these things now and can start moving forward with my life. But, I still miss her terribly. There's a piece missing from my heart.
