Capturing an artist at work can be difficult. Just thinking about it, it would probably be really hard to get a picture of me while I’m working on something important; I know that I get so focused and absorbed that the only thing you would probably get is anger. It’s not that I’m an angry person, it’s just that I am concentrating on what I’m creating.
That being said, this picture is of an artist at work. However, what I really love about it is the intensity on his face. He is absorbed. He did end up creating a beautiful work (in this image he is working on the outlines of my husband’s tattoo), but this captured moment in time, complete with the grimace of focus, is something that I think is really beautiful in it’s own way.
