This is a portrait I made of my father 14 years ago. I did not know then that four years later he would be dead. One day he was alive and himself and the next he had a stroke and never woke up again. It was july 8th 2000 when I lost him. Ten years ago. Ten long years. A third of my life, and it still tears me up inside. I guess that's one thing that's never gonna change. Rest in peace, dad. I really miss you.
