The reason i have painted only half of this portrait is because
its the best way to represent its significance and meaning,
I got the inspiration to paint this from a photograph i have
from this summer.
The original Photograph is of me and my ex-girlfriend and is one of our best
photographs together, since she left i feel like half of me has gone so i have
chosen only to paint whats left of who i am.
I guess what I'm trying to portray is that I'm not whole anymore
i have lost something in my life that has managed to affect
many of my emotions, because of that i don't wish for anyone else to
see them, affect them or tamper with them so I'm only showing a smiling facade
portraying happiness, cheerfulness and enjoyment, and hiding the sorrow, loneliness and heartache.
