    Sure. You can PM me a "throwaway" email address (to be safe) and I'll email you a link to the painting I did recently. Feedback encouraged!

    In honesty, I wouldn't buy one. Portraits, in a way, are creepy.

    That's what makes them beautiful. Also, sometimes you can capture someone's essence better with a portrait than with a photograph.

    I'm terrified of having pictures of people (me included) hanging on my walls... I always feel like I'm being watched

    Finding beauty in these certain types of creepiness is not one of my traits unfortunately. Yes, a better essence. However the essence may lie to you and alter the more truthful perception.

    I would pay as much as $150 for that size painted probably.

    Last year I had a 16x20 drawn in pencil of my wife and baby for Christmas. It was $75 and I think she gave me some kind of discount.

    The world is a chamber of horrors, my friend. We may as well find the beauty in that. There is a beauty in the liquid groans of the ever-emerging, ever-dying life that infests this planet like a vast seething pestilence. There is a beauty in the drumbeat of violence of birth and death that we dance to.

    You may say that, however, beauty can only be but a perception. And thus, beauty cannot be indicated except within the perception of the individual. What you have given me as beauty is, in the end, a personal view.
