Refuge

Refuge

Sometimes we feel overwhelmed by the noises of the world, by our own fears, our own expectations, the way time seems to fly and slip between our fingers. Sometimes we feel the need to retreat within ourselves, within a place of silence and solitude, within our souls. There we can breathe. There we can listen to the wind carrying our true voice, our true dreams, and simply be. In this sacred, secret place, we gather strength and understanding before diving into the flow of life again.

There's really something magical about painting a face. I only use a model in the early stages, to get an idea of the shadows etc. But I never try to make it look like the model, on the contrary. What I like most is to let the face emerge, its emotions, its personality, until it comes to life...
