Can art create acceptance? New portrait

can a portrait help us see the beauty in ourselves over drawing

So, can art create acceptance?  Can it help us understand one another better? Can it help us see ourselves with more compassion and see our beauty in a new way?

I am so excited to be working on this new portrait. It is unlike any other I’ve done. In this video, turn the sound on and here all I am sharing about the process of choosing how to approach this portrait. Makeup or none, the goth look the subject prefers or a more nature look… how can I honor this preteen and all their truth?

I can’t wait to share the rest of this portrait with you.
