Would You Allow Someone to Paint Your Portrait?

Take the quiz to the right, won't you?

Portrait of Jeanne Hébuterne
Modigliani's last muse 

If you answered "in a heartbeat" to the poll question, send me the image of a portrait by a painter whom you'd want to paint your portrait and in what style.

  1. I chose Andrew Wyeth or Edward Hopper, but I don't know how to send them to you here.

  2. Kenju: I think I have your email address in my list of contacts. I'll drop you a line and you can send me your favorite portrait by one of those artists. Though Hopper didn't typically paint portraits, did he? Not sure.

    SB: ha! :-D I'll have to try to dig up a Pollock that reveals something of a face or figure. Hard to do!

  3. I suppose it would have to be William Hogarth!

Emily Dickinson - The Belle of Amherst
"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
