Portraits require a balance of precision and expression. Anyone can see the precision when looking at both the subject and the portrait when they recognize the likeness. Those close to the subject are touched by the expression when they recognize the essence and personality of the subject conveyed through the portrait. It may be the true innocence that will forever remind a mother of her child’s first steps or a sense of honor and duty a General has gained from a lifetime of serving his country.
This is how a portrait evolves from simply a painting to what will someday be a family heirloom…the true commemoration of a legacy.
“A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.” ~ Paul Cezanne
