"Psychedelic Self Portrait 1969" Mixed Media Paper 20" x 24"

The other day I was writing in the blog about "painting in the zone" non stop while listening to a record skipping for more than two hours!  The song was "I Want To Take You Higher" by Sly And The Family Stone".  I was a senior in college and I was working on this self portrait for a basic design class. I was so into the painting that I never realized the record was skipping or I didn't care.  


  1. You definitely were taken to a higher place! This rocks! (or should I say.. groovy, man!).. wow, very nice... when that zone takes us away, it's such a blessing! Enjoy your day today, Michael! I love all the little things in the painting.. the planet, the colors and patterns.. the colors! Wow!

  2. Channeling Peter Max here are ya?
    Takes me back to the seventies when I was preteen!
    Keep painting...
