Portrait Art

A very lovely and savvy friend of mine told me ..."you should  Pinterest." ... So I did.

On Pinterest I often look for portrait art that inspires me and reassures me that the subject of a face is ever-interesting, ever-changing and ever-challenging. Indulge my Interest in faces as I share these paintings of strangers by strangers.

The common thread in these particular portraits, besides being female, is the directness of the subject. Those eyes stare into mine begging me to ask questions of them and of myself... "Who are you?"... "What are you thinking of?" ... "What is your story?" 

Who sees the human face correctly: the photographer, the mirror, or the painter?
— Pablo Picasso
