2. Painterly
3. Purposeful
4. Pretty
5. Bittersweet

5 Subjects I Might Paint
1. People I know, from photographs, cropped so that you don’t know that you don’t know them

3. Places I’ve been

5. Food

5 Reasons Why I Paint These Subjects
1. To show relationships through body language, because our heart can convey a feeling through body language that our head might not even be aware of
2. To show places that might spark a feeling of familiarity
3. To show places that might spark a feeling of foreignness
4. Because people ask me to
5. Because food can be pretty, and can spark memories and feelings associated with past events or future longings
