Portraits Are Time Capsules

Portrait of a Boy

Occasionally, it will take me quite a while to complete a portrait.  Therefore, the photograph used for reference is “old” before the painting is started.  And the portrait captures the age of of the subject at the time of the photograph.  My new portrait of a little boy already shows it’s age.  He doesn’t use a “sippy cup” any more.  I’ve captured his toddler years; now, long gone.  He’s four years old going on “young man”.  I’m hoping this young man won’t mind looking at his “Sippy Cup Portrait” for the rest of his life.  It’s a time capsule.
