Self portrait in the medium of acrylic on panel. Riva is shown from the waist up, has short auburn hair, and wears a black short-sleeved shirt. The waves of Lake Michigan are shown behind her in the background. One hand pulls the skin of her opposite upper arm into view, so she may regard the tattoo of Carole’s face emblazoned on the deltoid. Riva gazes at the tattoo with longing.
