Quarantine Portrait Series: Self Portrait – Slight Asymmetry

I introduced asymmetry in yesterday’s portrait accidentally. I was too tired to fix it and published it as it was. My artistic error gave way to musings on asymmetry and my efforts to understand Mike, my older brother who is autistic, nonverbal and low functioning.

I’ve been thinking a lot about Mike these days.  He has been in the hospital for weeks and is having trouble.  It is at the point where the palliative care docs have been talking with my younger brother, Dave and me about Mike’s  ‘quality of life’.  This is the cause of no small upset and reminds me of some of the issues I grappled with while growing up.  As I the situation unfolds, and as I process my reactions, I will try putting them in words and images.
