Face Me

"Face Me"- 4x4 inches, acrylic on gesso board

I take pleasure in everything I paint. Portraits and figures, however, have always been my passion. How disappointing to attend college art classes and have professors discourage me from creating the type of art that I loved.  I actually gave up art in college because it became so disheartening.  I began to believe the falsehood, that painting portraits was a waste of time, and so painted everything but faces and figures. The day came though, when I could no longer suppress my hearts desire.  I had to "Face Me" and accept that my passion is to paint the human soul peeking out through each visage.  In doing this I am truly happy.  Secure Face Me for your collection!
