"Footprints of the heart" by Erjun Zhao

Erjun Zhao painted this portrait of me about a year ago. I know it doesn't look like an oil painting, but it is. Zhao has a really interesting process and level of technical skill yet to be matched by anyone I have personally met.

This is my first time seeing the portrait - quite an incredible resemblance. She asked me to model for her after meeting during an exhibition of her work at Gallery5. I feel like there are some more images of me hidden in the background of paintings (in the recent works section), but the face is hidden too much to be completely sure. You can find more of her work here.
