What does it take to look inside someone. To see the side of them that others don't. What does it take to paint like that. To capture that feeling, if only for an instant, and put it on canvas. When I paint or draw someone I meet or know, this is the "connection" I try to achieve in my work. This "perceived" image can be somewhat different than the actual image of the person you are painting. This is, in my opinion, what makes great art.
