There’s something special in creating a portrait of a person. You observe the person’s face in a unique way, almost to the point of scrutiny. And if the person is someone so familiar, you discover many things about the face you normally didn’t notice before. I made a portrait of my father. I was fascinated with the melancholic way my father smiled, the numerous wrinkles around his kind eyes, the white stubbles… and it made me realize that the physical image of my father in my mind is outdated. I missed my father… I wish the family was together to celebrate your birthday. Good thoughts in every bit of this piece I offer to you. Happy birthday Papa! #art #artph #illustration #drawing #watercolor #pencil #graphite #portrait #father #gift
