Mixed media ink and water color on bond paper.
Today, October 3, 2010 I created a portrait of myself.

A self portrait inspired by my own feelings about my brother’s deployment in our war.

I show to you how I feel, notice how I have drawn my eyes, they are looking to the left…I have learned that the eyes move to the left while thinking about a sound…that is why I made my self portrait showing my eyes in this way because I am thinking about the sound of my brother’s laugh, I am also thinking about the question of how many other people are missing the laughter of their own brother’s and sister’s as much as I do.

I made my portrait not from a mirror but from my own mind, from my own soul and from my own feelings-this is what inspired my drawing today.

Again it is about the daily emotional experiences of those who have loved ones in our war.

I miss you H…

You make me smile
Your voice lifts my spirits
Your thoughtfulness means so much to me

Just like the other day, you took my call even though I woke you up because I forgot the correct calculation of time difference and you still picked up the call and you were so kind and you made me laugh and I made you laugh…it was like you were just down the road.

H, you have a very good heart and you are and forever will be a person I admire and look up to…I only look sideways when I want to hear you laugh.
