We all fail in life from time to time. Some people seem to struggle with it a bit more openly than others. I like Amy's singing, but cringed at her lifestyle. I guess her struggles with imperfection are over. Hate to see anyone go out like that. Rest in Peace.
Sad to say that I got an anonymous comment that I was profiting from a death by doing this portrait. No, this isn't a commission, or being used in any article. It's just something from my sketchbook this week; a commentary on a tragedy. There is no profit in such a death, but we can learn from what has been a very, very public struggle with addiction, and also disgusting coverage of every inch of her downfall.
