Portraits

I am drawn to the challenge of portrait painting and finding that moment between 'snap shot' and the reveal of a personality or emotion.  The fast drying acrylic paints with their intensity and versatility suit my temperament and the meditative state of pushing the paint around to capture the likeness of someone I care for is enriching.
