I love painting the portrait. Partially because the face is wonderfully complex and it is challenging to physically manifest the likeness of a person through paint. But even more than that I really enjoy telling a persons story through their face. It is such a quiet and poetic way to confront the viewer with the reality of another person. There on the canvas they quietly call out to us the human experience. I like to think that it inspires empathy and understanding in others.
