It seems like an endless activity, but in my free moments I’ve been sorting
through the shelves of one of the bookcases in my studio. I found this portrait
of my good friend and one of my favourite artists — Marcia LaBelle Cohen.
I’m not sure when it was painted. And although I really like the painting for
its loose, quick quality --it is not the best likeness of my gorgeous friend.
Still I like the piece's cheery feeling, and felt happy when I found it tonight. I
hope that someday I do an excellent portrait of Marcia. She is lucky to own
portraits of herself by famous artists who have caught her magnificent beauty
I sometimes dream of doing wonderful portraits of all my artist friends, but
at the moment that remains an idea. It is a good time for dreaming, a good
time for ideas, and an excellent time to sort through the work that’s already done.
Have a loving your friends and discoveries day.
