I honestly don’t know how I happen to catch the likenesses in my portrait painting. I grew up on the Beatles and took it upon myself to start drawing their portraits and selling them in grammar school. 50 cents apiece I believe. I have no idea how many I drew and sold. In those days it was a writing pencil and tracing the outline of the face from fan magazines. Something must have clicked from that high level technique and while I agonize over the thought of doing a portrait, I have often been very successful at it.
