The Idea

Large Scale Portraits of people with a lot of life experience that integrate the actual words of their stories into the lines and wrinkles of their faces.

Up next- Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery Competition

I have decided that next big endeavor will be entering the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition 2013 at the Smithsonian Institute's National Portrait Gallery. The prize is $25,000 and a commission for the permanent collection. The deadline is coming up at the end of this month so I would like some feedback, please. Of the 5 portraits I did for ArtPrize, which do you think is the most compelling- Esther, Bill, Frank, Inez, or Cirila?


  1. Yours was my favorite by far!! Very talented and I loved the stories within the face. Would you consider doing paintings? I am blessed that both My parents are still living at 88 and 89. Please let me know and what it would cost.

    Thank you, Marian

  2. Bill and Esther were my favorites. Hope that helps. Good luck!

  3. Frank is my favorite. I couldn't stop staring at his eyes. Then when I heard his "story", he was even more compelling!
