Comments: Even though I am half way through my life, I find myself still bound in different masks to ashamed to let people know who I really am. I am too embarrassed to let the art community know I am a Christian for fear of being rejected. And I am to ashamed of letting my friends at my church see my artwork for fear of the same. So I continue to put my masks on. I feel so bound at times in the traditions of my culture and the culture around me I never fully feel free to really express who I really am. Hopefully in the next forty years I will be able to unmask myself and be just Bob.
