Craving

A craving is a longing or a desire for something.  We often associate it with food, but we can have these feelings for almost anything.  I crave calm and stillness...but most days both elude me.  Maybe it's all those other skills that we have celebrated this week that overpower this desire.

We often think that portraits are about showcasing beauty and hiding imperfections.  For me, the most powerful portraits illustrate realness and connection - connection to another person, a place, a thing...or yourself.  Your face is not necessary to show this kind of connection.  In this image, standing still in the greenhouse, a place that slows me down, tells the story of finding calm much better than seeing my face would have.

What do you crave?  Illustrate it in today's self portrait.
