Greta with Dark Self




Greta in front of her self-portrait.




Greta with Dark Self, in progress. Painting on the left by Greta...



My second sitter in the portrait project, Portland artist Greta Bank. These portraits feel more like my self-portraits, and probably because I am making them for me. What I mean by that is I'm not out to please or flatter or truly render my sitters. I'm looking for something else...

Hey Martha, beautiful work as usual. It's good to have you letting us know what you're thinking and working on again.
