This is an acrylic on canvas painting inspired by a photo taken of me last summer in Boston. My brother had zoomed in on my face (as he’s known to do) while I was waiting for my lunch to be brought out. I was about to delete the picture, but realized it actually captured my essence rather well. And so, this is the result. The best ideas are often ones that come up by accident.
