Self portrait with tears

Self portrait with tears - student project

It's too soon to post my self portraits, but I want to share that I have a feeling I'm getting better at this. I started hiding behind a painting I made. It is a painting of myself. I put my face exactly behind my painted face and started making funny faces, crazy faces and then suddenly started crying. Why am I not supposed to be seen? Why do i have to hide? So I lowered the painting and looked into the lens, just crying. i didn't take a picture because i didn't want to get up and put the phone one selftimer again, but I just felt realy seen.

This was very powerful. Thank you Lucie, for this assignment and opportunity for me to grow and feel supported, even though you were not there for real.
