"Self Portrait Imperfect" is a mixed media piece that happens from a desire to step away from the norm. I looked at my portrait, picture perfect smile and it occurred to me that my life had been everything but perfect and that behind my smile there was a lot of turmoil, confusion and fear. So one night, bored of the same thing, I decided to "paint over it". Yes, that's right, paint over it. I started using dry old dry paint from old pallets, and acrylic paint, I literally threw the paint up in the air and unto the canvas, without any care, over the perfect guitar I had painted years before, but yet keeping some of its perfection. The point was to STEP AWAY FROM THE NORM and why not? Because maybe when we finally get to that point where we let it all go, accept ourselves as we are, then we conquer fear of the unknown and that's when we truly live fully.
