I think portraits have always been my main interest. I got away from it because realism in itself did not drive me and a gallery friend said they were not a sound investment of my time. Not having ever been in high demand for my art – I now ask myself why I didn’t just stick with it? As I have never been one to regret past actions and one who always tries to correct my flaws – what else to do with your life but dedicate it to improvement – I will now return to see what I can say with the portrait.
Finally finished the Jenn painting – just a few small changes. Happy finally.
I am now working on a portrait of my mother and the one piece I’ve been slowly working on [one day a month at the art class] will be coming home to be finished on my time off.
