This woman did such a fine job and she was very talented, so I thanked her and was on my way. As I walked away, I noticed that she didn't paint my left ear.
I heard from a friend that the woman was deaf in her left ear. I was going to go back to her so she could finish painting the left ear on my picture, but I didn't. Instead, I thought it was a unique painting and maybe an expression of her art work.
I always wondered if she didn't paint the left ear on purpose, and every time I look at this picture, I appreciate the hearing that was lovingly given to me.
Have you ever had a self portrait done of yourself? How did it turn out?
