I have a love/hate with portraiture....I love the challenge and just portraits themselves, but they are such a pain for a perfectionist as I never get them right. It is a lesson in letting it "be". Last week I did oil pastel portraits of my children..... it just so happens they are both sleeping; I used photos as a model and my best photos were of them napping.
But wait there's more....

|This is a portrait of model Tyra Banks . This is my first portrait|
attempt and it took weeks to work on . I did this 15 years
ago in high school.
|A lithograph. I respect but do not enjoy lithography.|
I thought "1980s" here. Circa 1998
