A particular light on a certain day, a subject that beckons with calm but compelling emotion--these are qualities that most frequently ignite my creative spirit. Technical bravura and in the case of portraiture, likeness, are not enough to differentiate the good from the great. I want the viewer to form an 'eye lock' with their first glance, to be  lost in the moment of the sheer joy of connecting with art that stands on its own first as beautiful art and much later,  if at all,  to ponder the more peripheral merits of execution.   -- Beth

I consider all of
 my paintings
to be portraits.
