The Face you love

This new thing of doing portraits of specific people is have an affect on me. The response has been shocking. So many people want a refection of the face they love.
this is no small task. As I don’t personally know them I have to rely on photographs. A lot of photographs so I can get a total sense of what the person is like. Photographs are good at capturing the seconds that make the minutes and hours that that person has lived more seeable. I am looking for what their spark looks like and then I can paint them.
I have to study the photographs first for a while.
People have so much inside them that is perceptible on the outside if you look hard enough.
When I do the girl paintings I just look at the total body but this is way different.
You have to see the inside or the outside will be meaningless.
that is how amazing it is doing these.
