Someone clicked on a link on my blog to this artist’s Wikipedia article, and I clicked on the link.
I glanced at some of this artist’s paintings on Wikimedia Commons and I saw this painting again which caught my attention, so I decided to do a post about it.
I like the combination of detail and colors and lighting, and the lack of detail in some areas.
It would be interesting to have someone paint a portrait of you like this.
I would be curious to see how I would look if someone were to paint a portrait of me one day.
It is rare, but I have seen portrait painters a few times before over the years, long ago at fairs and shopping malls et cetera, who would paint you a portrait.
I regret never having a portrait of myself made back then.
