Self-portrait of the artist 38 years ago. I was soon to develop the venereal disease, chlamydia. I had been 100% faithful to my girlfriend, but SHE must have had sex with someone else and then infected ME. At the time I did not suspect her because I could not believe that she could or would betray me that way. It was beyond my comprehension that she was sleeping with anyone but me. But WAIT! Look at this painting. If indeed this was me back then, then surely my girlfriend was justified in looking for other sexual partners!
