“Alexander ~ A Portrait”
Oil, 18×14 inches
To manage the time difference between us, Alex was a good sport and awoke quite early to make our Skype meeting happen, a cup of coffee in hand! After a fabulous video meeting, which was made even more fun by Alexander’s humor, we settled on the idea of my painting him in the setting of a classic European train station. He said when people came to his home, he’d like for them to notice the oil painting, and then upon closer inspection, see that it is a portrait of him.
During the process of painting Alex, I read some of his thought-provoking writings, which I enjoyed immensely, and gave me more richness to include in my impression of him on canvas.
“The painting looks tremendous! I am quite delighted. You are a supremely gifted artist… It is simply fabulous…” – Alexander M., Singapore
