Well, I finished my end of the swap. I can’t wait to see his portrait of me. Vanity, vanity! All is vanity! LOL! This portrait swap is almost like doing a self-portrait without that particular angst. Anyway, here he is. Mixed media on Strathmore toned mixed media paper. I hope he likes it.
“I tell you it’s no joke to paint a portrait. I wonder that I am not more timid when I begin. I feel almost certain that I can do it. It seems very simple. I don’t think of the time that is sure to come when I almost despair, when the whole thing seems hopeless.” — William Morris Hunt
