Day 80

In this case, I recently saw a distinctive bush alongside the highway; from a distance, the buds at the end of the branches resembled birds. The more I thought about it, the visual in my mind transformed to what eventually became today's portrait.

Sometimes it's challenging to viewers when a self-portrait doesn't really include the likeness of the artist. I personally think that some of the best portraits (images of the artist or of others) focus not on what the person looks like, but rather what they are like. In other words, certain aspects of a person's personality are often the most important thing.
