Portrait Gift

"A Painter's Progress" by Steven Samuel
This week I received the gift of this painting in my email.  Welsh artist Steven Samuel complimented my blog and sent this portrait of me that he had done from a photo I'd posted. 

I looked Steven up and found out that he is notable for a portrait project that he recently exhibited.  Using celebrities as his subjects, he painted some wonderful, contemporary portraits which he will sell to raise money for a facility called Macmillan Cancer Care.  You can read more about it here and see some of the portraits below.  

Thanks, Steven, for the great gift!  

Happy painting.
