Portraits have always been something I’ve struggled with. I am well versed in the proportions of the human face, and think I can draw them well. My weak point, however, is making them resemble anyone specific. I have yet to develop an eye for that je ne sais quoi, the distinguishing factor that really captures the essence of an individual. Admittedly, I have not put too much time or effort into honing that skill either, but certainly something I want to work on this year.
These are all headlines from Monday, the 27th, but they could’ve been from pretty much any day this year. I have a very hard time rationalizing the atrocities on a basic civil and humanitarian level, across borders and religions, wrapped in “democracy” and “freedom.” More and more I am thinking dear Mr. Lennon had it right…
This is great. Keep up the wonderful work, Sis!
love you! thanks for the support <3
