    BEAUTIFUL!!! You made my week @hemingway. That's stunning. I feel seduced by a painting on a music forum, how can that possibly happen?!?! Great stuff, thanks for sharing. Love the dress color and the background color.

    Thanks. About 4 or 5 years. I can't draw very well, and I don't really draw from life. I always work from photos, which gives me a good margin for error.

    But I like colour and composition. And with people I like to paint a lot of space around them. Gives them room to think and show you who they are.

    I'd been a photographer my whole life only because I wasn't talented enough to be a painter. Great work.

    I sometimes think that would be a lot less trouble . . . but I doubt it.

    I should add that the lady in the picture wants to buy it (as did the subject of my last portrait), which is a huge relief, as my bike just fell apart and I've just bought a new keyboard.

    This portrait business is nerve wracking. Maybe I'll paint trees or rocks for a while. Don't have to worry about getting the likeness right.

    Wasn’t that painting in Rod Serling’s night gallery ?

    (that’s a compliment)

    Very nice! But Hemingway - Shouldn't you be Degas...?

    Yeah, I know. But I used to write novels.

    Now Degas, there's a painter. One of my absolute favourites.

    But my real idol is Cezanne. Probably the only artist who deserves a category all to himself. I learned to paint by copying Cezannes. I must have done close to 60 of 'em.

    I’m a painter too. But I’ve gravitated from Van Gogh to the abstract expressionists. My current favorite - Joan Mitchell.
