This is a portrait I did of my friend G. and I thought it appropriate to share on this, the loveliest day of the year [insert sarcasm], Tax Day. I based this portrait on the selfie G. took when he voted in last November’s elections. Participating in citizenship and sometimes having to pay money for that citizenship can feel like a burden. But in the bigger picture it’s a small price to pay. Participation in the process is its’ own reward.
