On Portraiture

Portraits can take many shapes and forms Unlike in Rembrandt, a Rubens, or even a Dali Modern artists will often eschew the norms Portraits of myself do not look much like me. Unlike in Rembrandt, a Rubens, or even a Dali A portrait may be merely a fine-line drawing Portraits of myself may not look much like me, Asked why, the artist will do some hem-hawing. A portrait may be merely a fine-line drawing Having none of the subject’s facial features, Asked why, the artist will do some hem-hawing Artists must see subjects as mythical creatures. Having none of the subject’s facial features, I find it impossible to know who I’m looking at Artists must see subjects as mythical creatures, But I take umbrage when I am drawn as a cat! I find it impossible to know who I’m looking at Modern artists will often eschew the norms But I take umbrage when I am drawn as a cat, Portraits can take many shapes and forms.
