I love to depict people. It is very difficult to accomplish because it is so exacting. Everything has to be correct or the portrait and any miss is very obvious. Nobody cares if a tree branch is not in the same spot as any particular tree. There is variability that is acceptable for that subject that doesn’t exist in portraiture. I want to create a painting that instantly becomes a family heirloom that will be cherished for generations to come more than any photo.
