Portrait Project

Portrait of an Art Lover Sincere  eye contact is somewhat rare in the 21st century.  There is little that a portrait artist can accomplish without such communication  with the subject. Leonard Bernstein was an exception to my requirement of this fundamental human experience. For example, subjects often  seem to feel adrift when I ask that they forgo texting while sitting.   A portrait is a window of  time,  place, and personal affect.  We go from the generic to the specific individual in a portrait;  above all,  revealing  interaction between two people.
