 This face, my son's, is my favorite in the world - and one of the hardest for me to paint because I know it so well. The challenge is to not just capture his likeness, but to express something about the incredibly kind and intelligent person he is.

  2. Thank you Meredith! There's no way to keep detached and break it down to color and form while painting someone I love this much. I could go on and on!
