I've been thinking a lot about portraits lately.
Anybody out there feel like modeling?
Nothing too formal...well, actually formal might be kind of fun.

1. Charles Dickens (chillin') n.d.
2. "The hand of artist Georgia O'Keeffe holding one of her favorite stones in her palm." John Loengard - Albiquiu, NM - 1968
