Bulgaria was the country for my Diary of Faces this week. I chose to paint a crop La Melancolique, 1909, by Jules Pascin. Pascin suffered from depression and commited suicide at the age of 45 after a series of unfavorable reviews. A sad reminder that we should love what we create but not worry too much about what other people think of it. Do not let others judge your worth as an artist, or as anything else.
