I just thought I would share with the few of you who keep up with this page: 

This is Self-Portrait by Chuck Close, from 1997.  Mr.
Close is one of my favorite artists, and I am lucky to say that I have
met him and have had the priveledge of hearing him speak.  I found
the image on Google; I have not obtained permission from anyone to post
it here, and therefore am probably breaking some copyright law(s), but
I thought I would share anyway.  Mr. Close, forgive me. 

Feel free to leave your thoughts and comments.  Perhaps this
will elicit more commentary than did the post on teenage sexuality.
