Self Portrait

Lately I have felt a bit lost and my choice of subject matter has been random. Honestly most night I’m not sure what I should paint or draw. Tonight I decided to do a self portrait because it has been a while. I hope that at some point in the future I figure out a clear direction for my artwork.

I feel that if I just had a focus for my work that I would easily gain motivation and momentum. I’ve been struggling with this for months, I know that I want to improve my skills but I also need a direction to keep motivated.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
