here are several 'portraits' most of which are people. I hope you enjoy them. if you do, share your thoughts on the intangible cat guestbook.

for optimum viewing happiness, i suggest hitting F11 on your computer. this maximizes your browser so you can see more of the paintings. when you've finished looking, just hit F11 again and it'll go back to where you once were.

 

Annie #6

this shot is from a roll of pictures I took of Annie. there's something exciting about trying to capture who someone is in a photograph, not who they want to be. photographing annie was the first time I felt I somewhat accomplished this. her wry smile and her nervous jade bracelet hand: this was the annie I knew in India.

were it that I could share more of my life with him.
