Kimberly’s portrait is one of eleven I painted for a book that will be published next year. The others are of Allyson, Bettie, Cynthia, Deloris, Heather, Jeff, Lidia, Rubynell, Sanchioni, Sarita, and Smiley. With this series, I am rediscovering my beginnings as a portrait painter. At the start of my career, I painted everyone from Portland gallery owners to Oregon public servants, and I did so without the added elements that I included in Swollen for example. It feels good to return to the directness of a simple portrait collection.
