Anthony and Harold



Hello Friends:

Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. ~Oscar Wilde.

These two portraits were painted in open studio at Mainstreet. In any given session, there will be a group of artists painting the same person, from a different vantage point. At the culmination of the evening, we will circulate and see how each of us interpreted the same individual. Some will have soft edges and muted skin tones. And then some (like me) will push the color and edges as far as they can go. Each painting is lovely, and indeed often says more about the artist than the sitter.
