Overexposure/Overexposed

Most recent self-portrait, titled either "Overexposure" or "Overexposed":

It started out as a self-portrait of adult blindness and muteness on the topic of childhood trauma, but turned out looking very different than I'd expected: very skeletal, very bare and stark and exposed.

Starting on October 2nd, it's going to appear in an exhibit at the Berkeley cafe Sweet Adeline's, though I'm not really sure my trauma skeleton is the sort of thing people want to look at while nibbling on tasty scones.
