Another month is ending. I repeat, another month is ending. What have you guys achieved so far? Me? I don’t know. I thought I am already having a good grasp of my mood management but who am I kidding. Just last Thursday, I practically ran to Church to bawl my eyes out. Hee. I have been moody (acting mean to some people), distant (deactivated Facebook), and fickle (activated Facebook again after a few days). But I am trying. I am trying.
Oops. That is a life update that I am supposed to share for tomorrow’s post but whatever.
So let’s talk a little about art. I was planning to write a “Why I Paint Portraits” essay/ post but I realized that I do not have an honest answer nor a comprehensive explanation to that. To think that I have been sketching/ painting portraits for about six years already. I am still dwelling on this as of the moment. Why do I paint portraits? What do I get with painting portraits? I have tried reading articles about why artists paint portraits to see if I will come across something that will make me go, “YES! THAT’S WHY I PAINT PORTRAITS!” but information about it is very scarce and I read nothing that made me understand this need that I have to paint people.
Why do you think people paint portraits? Have you got any theories on that?
