A New Blog

'Kathleen' 36"x28" Acrylic on canvas (detail)
As I am in a new country, I thought a new simple blog about painting and art, specifically portrait painting and its related practices, might be a good start.

The title is a (mis)quote from Sir Thomas Lawrence who described himself as such: "a slave of the picture I am painting, as if it had living, personal existance, and chained me to it."

However, I thought "painting" would be better as a blog title and address, as "picture" has more modern, photographic connotations... and I'm not in any way a photographer.
