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.
