portrait gives a likeness. A great portrait combines all the
qualities of great art with an uncanny ability to see and to
translate onto canvas the unique presence of an individual.
Such portraits will have strong composition, excellent use of
color and tonal values, and have brushwork that demonstrates
mastery and compliments the subject. Whether I am painting a
person or an animal, I want the painting to sing
of its subject, to evoke an emotion, to speak of a time.
