"This portrait is one of a series of drawings and paintings of the same sitter, completed over the previous year, and is the one with which I was most satisfied. Although my work is predominantly focused on still-life painting I became interested in portrait painting over the past two years. My interest came about out of a curiosity regarding the various traditional approaches to the subject and the unique challenges portrait painting presents."
