Portrait number 1000
Well what can I say... even as I type this message out it seems surreal to me, it’s been over 2 years 8 months and 26 days ago since I embarked on this journey. I never could have imagined that it would have taken me this far, and I if I didn’t have the memory of spending so many nights alone in front of the mirror I would not believe it myself.
I can look back at the very first portrait I posted and part of me can re-live and feel that moment, I can remember what my life was like then, the thoughts and emotion running through my body and my mind as I held the pencil in my hand, I can almost imagine it like it was yesterday, but at the same time that person I was feels like a total stranger to the face that stares at me in the mirror today.
Time is such a mystery; I value it over all things but it remains a complete illusion. Change is real; these portraits have documented the changes in my face and my life.
I appreciate this community’s support and encouragement over the years, without it I would not be where I am today,
the 1000 portrait poster is coming soon.....
