Today I decided that I wanted to have some smoothness to the card. I often outline the natural edges created by the splotch, but today I was in a different mood.
As an professional artist there is an expectation that artists find something to specialize in. I'm told specializing will get me more business and that it is beneficial to be recognizable. I thought I had found that in portraiture, but after committing to it something wasn't right. I have been struggling to make work I use to love. There is a fear present for me when working on a commission. There is a need to please and satisfy someone who's tastes I have learned I am unable to quantify. I search for something I can maintain over a long time that brings me peace and pleasure. I just wonder if such a thing actually exists for me. My personality is contrary to the societal meme.
And the winner is...
Congratulations to our only entry who hasn't won before Caroline Gutierrez Abreu ! You now have the privilege of naming this card and possibly creating a back story for it as well (if you are interested.) Thanks so much for your support and for sharing the project!
