Painting a Self-portrait
Can one truly capture themselves on a single canvas
without the urge to airbrush the truth away
Decisions, decisions, decisions
What size?, what format? moreover, what story to convey?
Shall they use deep rich textures of oil
or charcoal pencils to shade the sad secret events of their lives
Why not just throw paint on the canvas and let everyone else tell their version of it
Once finished, will it be cherished by their children after they pass away
or be sold at five different yards sales, until the curb calls its name?
The strength of your character has only one faithful stroke, hold it there as long as you can
