Spirit in a portrait?

February 13, 2013

Can spirit be in a portrait?

Can it show through a photograph?

Can it show up on the computer screen

What‘s art got to do with it? 

An opera diva friend of mine Veronica August, made the following comment about my portrait of Raffaella Girardi

Paula       Love your drawing of Rafaella.  

I actually can get a sense of what art is, when I look at her face and your interpretation of it. 

Never saw that before. 

Never could understand that artistic mind and what it renders onto canvas.

Especially her different eyes and your ability to get it.  

And yes, it’s the spirit I see in those two eyes…one looking inwardly to the kingdom within;  the other outwardly to this physical world.
