Portrait

Most of the personalities I have portrayed, I did invite to sit and pose for me. Something in their attitude or energy made me stop and wonder. In some way portraying somebody is like making them talk about them selves, without words. Painting somebody is both very personal and cross bordering. You cant avoide to see parts, that are normally hidden away and you cant avoid to get involved. You might want to make somebody happy about their portrait, but to be happy about it yourself, is a different matter. A matter of the accord between what you see and what you are able to make visible. But to paint a good painting you also need to be distant and concentrated and not involved in the benefit or rating of your work. I always wish would to keep an open space in the faces I paint and I sholud not answer all questions .
