Portrait Paintings & Drawings
“Your art goes below the surface of skin and tissue and goes directly to the soul.
The first time I came into your studio I was semiretired and haunted by the hard work I was trying to leave. I had thought that I had overcome my regrets but when you captured me on that day I knew I was still the hard man I wanted to escape.
The second time we met I had abandoned hope and was open to living in every aspect of love: You sat me down and we did it again. You drew me as a gentleman.
I see these portraits every day
and think of Dorian Grey
each one a self of my own true selves;
none less wonderful.”
