I’ve never met her in person. Often times we’d leave comments on a common friend’s post until our posts would regularly appear on each other’s feeds. What I do know is that she’s a photographer and a very good one at that. She was wondering what to give her mom for her birthday, when one of my paintings appeared on her feed. So that’s how she got the idea of getting me to paint her mom’s portrait.



I was touched when she said, “You captured her better than I could.”

Honestly, I never thought that painting portraits could feel so… fulfilling. I love what I do and what I’ve done.  I can’t wait to do more. Every time I look back, I see how much of my technique has changed. It’s like something I’d want to do everyday for as long as I live.
