Melting head self portrait encaustic hashish art by Steve Veatch
Melting Self
Pigment sticks on canvas
10" x 8"

Not satisfied with it as it was and having an experimental bent, I wondered what would happen if I put it in an oven at 175 for a bit and tilted it.

I was slightly altered on hashish at the time.

Read Paul Bowles's Collected Short Stories if you want a good description of hashish psychosis in The Delicate Prey. Guess I and everyone or anyone have been lucky so far that I've not found myself in such difficulty.
