"White Dress", 14 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
I am fascinated by the portrait, maybe because I find it so difficult. With a landscape you can smudge around--change the design and look to harmony without having to put a structure called a nose in approximately the right place. You can make the sky bigger or move the tree to the left or the right. But maybe, in the end, it is a good strategy to think of a portrait as a landscape--just another interesting set of shapes and planes and darks and lights.
