Everything comes out as a cliché.  

An overly familiar face says little other than, “this is what a face is supposed to look like.”

My meditation focuses on questions: What are the pieces that make up this familiar face? What does an eye look like? What does MY eye look like? What about a nose or an eyebrow or an ear?

The mental distraction of what I think a face should look like, gets in the way of drawing what MY face really looks like.

My challenge to myself – and I now extend to you all – is to LOOK.  Really LOOK at who you are and not who you think you are.

Perception versus reality – is there a difference?

I don’t know, but I’m curious to explore.
