As I was standing before the canvas, brush in hand, I felt a sense of reverence wash over me. The subject of my painting, a shy and reserved man, seemed to emit an aura of delicate vulnerability that both intrigued and moved me. In each stroke, I wanted to paint not just the surface, but his story – the experiences that have shaped him.
