If you don't know the work of portrait artist, Michael Gibson,
follow the link here to see his astounding portraits, frequently
accompanied by deeply moving poetry. I don't know what
made me think I could paint Michael, but I wanted to honour
him for his amazing work. And my portrait of Michael based
on a video he did about his work took me awhile to complete.
I had Michael's approval to paint it, and when it was finally
done, and he saw my write up on it, he liked it, and if I was
doing mental somersaults of excitement that he like the work!
So I was very happy that my portrait of Michael, was one of
three paintings that were accepted into the juried Form
and Figure Show, on virtually this month managed by the
San Fernando Valley Arts and Cultural Center. I will write
up the other two works in other posts this week.
Happy Labour Day.
