This is the May portrait I did for the last Friday Night Portrait Group. A full blog article on my experience can be found at WestEndTalk. I'd promised the Gallery Director, Lin Gardner, an article on the May sittings. At the time I didn't know it would be Tom Buechner's last with the group. 


  1. Good heavens you are so good ! Beautiful , soft portrait , great , Gina

  2. Thanks Gina! As usual I can only see the mistakes, but I'll cherish this painting because it was the last one I painted with Buechner. Already have it framed and hanging in my studio :)

  3. Mistakes? I can see no mistakes. This is absolutely stunning.


About Me

My photo
Elmira, New York, United States
In many ways I think like a photographer. The image itself is becoming more and more important to me; the actual application of paint less and less. Blasphemy in some painterly circles. I choose to paint figures and portraits because I consider them the most difficult subject.
