I love doing family portraits. As I work on the pieces I spend concentrated time thinking about my subject and learning the real details of faces I have been looking at forever. Family photos are easy to find and I know when I have captured the essence of my subject. I do try to ask permission because, as my son Matthew says, “Mom, everyone does not feel comfortable with a huge portrait of himself hanging on the wall.” OK, I’ll hang them on my own wall!
