When I was a child,
I said that red was my favorite color.
It is a beautiful color, and so whenever my aunt
asked me what color yarn to use for the next sweater or cardigan that she was going to knit for me,
I would tell her to please use red.
But it wasn't my favorite color.
No matter how much I told myself
that it really should be.
My actual favorite color is yellow.
But, in Sweden we have a saying - ”Gult är fult”= ”Yellow is ugly”.
I don't know, but everyone in Sweden seems to know that rhyme. And so as a child who ”didn't fit in” (having moved from the capitol city of Stockholm to a tiny village in the South, where everyone seems to be related somehow),
loving an unpopular color just seemed like an easy thing to change.
So I said ”red”.
I now live surrounded by yellow.
My house and car might be red, but everything else that can be is now yellow.
When I have a down day,
I just stare at something yellow.
And yellow flowers swaying in the breeze on a hot summer day make me feel like
I'm already in Heaven.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I don't want you to choose portraits or printed products
based on what other people think.
I want you to tell me
exactly what kind of portraits make you excited,
& how you want them printed to
actually serve your needs
(not the needs people have told you that you have).
I want you to
BE FREE TO BE YOU.
Great Portraiture can be
After all is said and done,
how do you want to be remembered?
Do you want people to remember your face,
& what you looked like?
Or do you want them to remember your personality,
WHO you were?
You probably know what Mona Lisa looked like.
But do you know what she was like?
