Getting Ready- Schmidt Center for Art

I have been invited to show my GROWTH PORTRAIT series at the Who's Looking at You: Contemporary Portraits at the Schmidt Center for Art at the Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, IL.

The show opens on January 21, 2010.

I have to deliver the 23 portraits of my son Evan next Tuesday.

I thought today would be a good day to clean up the portraits to get them ready.

It took all day -- and gave me time to reflect and reconsider each and every portrait! My how time flies when you watch a child grow!

So.. here is a photo of my studio- scattered with 30 x 40 portraits that will be stacked and packaged for delivery on Tuesday

I saw these in the artist's magazine - love them! It was very inspiring to me. I dont'usually do portaits but had done one of my then five year old about weven years ago. It challenged me to try it again now that she is twelve. What a beautiful record you have of your son's growth! what a great idea.
