I love to capture personality and the spirit of a person beyond their likeness. This brings us into the present moment experience with that person. I often paint the background to create a space more consistent with the message than the one initially captured by a photograph. It is part of how I conceptualize the overall painting to maximize the impact for decades to come. I also work from several photographs so I can really nail the likeness. Cameras distort and with several images to work from I can overcome that and have enough information to give you that feeling for the person.
