The incredible lightness of being

September 13th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

One of the hardest things to do in portraiture is to catch the essence of a person. Features are bad enough, but to actually catch personality is the trick that everyone who ever painted a portrait is wanting to do.
I have been very fortunate in my life to know people of all ages, and it pleases me that Alexander is in my acquaintance. He positively radiates joy and has an unflappable attitude. I present to you my take on his face.

    Dear Mimi, yes, joy radiates from that painting. Not just the smile, but the raised cheeks and the twinkling eyes. Peace.
