“The artist’s portrait is often much more than a mere likeness of a person's outer shell. It can represent an insightful panoramic view of a person, their thoughts, emotions and character, all distilled into the quint-essentials.  The artist’s insight and experience blend as the portrait evolves from a momentary instant in the sitter's life to a timeless and unique vision revealing much

about the sitter. Something the camera seldom peers deeply enough to see.”
