Day 36

As I worked on today's self-portrait, I came to a pretty sobering realization: I'd probably be sharing a bigger part of myself than I had on the previous pieces in this project. And while I was fully aware that I could always do a different drawing or painting and no one would ever know, I didn't want to. Most people who "know" me, know that I can be a pretty emotional person - a trait that is sometimes good, and sometimes not so great.

It's a sad thing when a person looks in the mirror and realizes that they may not like the person who is looking back at them. I think we all have some things about ourselves that we wish we could change. In my case, I know I can be pretty overbearing in certain situations, which at times makes me seem like - for lack of a better word - an asshole.

That's something that I'd really like to change...
