People​ & Portraits

Paintings of people and portraits can be effective and compelling storytelling objects d'art.  It's not just a visual representation of a person (or pet); it will also reveal something about the essence of the person.  


What the portrait reveals may not be completely obvious - sometimes it can be cleverly implied through a certain expression or pose, an included object, or an artist's use of color.


Sometimes the person in the portrait can become iconic, representing a wider group of people from a specific period in time, who share something in common; or it can evoke moods or emotional reactions, bringing forth memories from the past.
