    It took a while, but I have finally learned to face my monsters. They can be scary, but so can I.

    In a portrait, I really want to feel and understand the person and by that I need to see into their eyes. Here, we can only see one, but the message it portrays is strong, personal and meaningful. I love the fact that only half of the face is illuminated and the other is hidden in shadow. I’m left wondering what it looks like. Is it painted up the same or not painted or even more freakish. We’ll never know. Great sense of mystery. The soft tattoos in the background and on the neck and shoulders
