I love to paint people. Young people. Old people. Men and women- rich and poor. I paint them all. Every time I paint a new face, I am enchanted. Fascinated. I get lost in capturing the subject’s personality. Their attitude. Their being.
A hundred years from now, I want my portraits to say something to future generations. So, as I’m painting, I imagine a mother yet unborn saying to her daughter, "See that portrait hanging there? That’s your great-great grandmother. She was a wonderful lady."
