    The likeness you captured is awesome. Lots of personality. I love it when an artist can capture the soul and spirit of their subjects. The life in the sitter. Nice work.

  • Kim 23.7.07

    thank you so much know your subject on the inside and to convey that in a portrait is the ultimate success for me.....and some models are easier to paint or draw.....(like Deborah)
    I have never painted a portrait of someone that I didn't like or admire .......
