I painted this portrait as a reaction to social media taking up more an more of my time. The pressure of entertaining a few followers on a daily basis was overwhelming. Others seem to find the time and energy, with a slip up every now and then. The person pictured in the centre of the image appears to reveal such a moment, looking away with a tired expression. The large rectangle in the very front of the image is the true subject of the painting.
