Personality Portraits

In recognition of the fact that simply capturing a likeness does not empower a painting with the character of its model, I attempted to create portraits, whose very style and technique reflects the individual's personality. I did these of my family because I know them so well, but I would love to create more pieces like them of friends and maybe for commission.

My father, Robert: Engineer. Organized. Wise.

My sister, Hanna: Writer. Passionate. Monogramed.

My only brother, Caleb: Studious. Witty. Adventurer.

My sister Sarah. Academic. Tri-lingual. A Baker
