Self Portrait With Coffee Cup
Paul Hutchinson
oil
1997

I find it interesting now to notice how all the self portraits from this time I am wearing the same dark blue pull-over. I lived in it until it wore out I guess. The deep folds and dark blue colour I guess represent the dark melencholy I was feeling at the time.

My hand covering the cup. It was empty, but I'd had quite enough already. I can't even meet my own gaze.
