    1. No… that’s not me. I’m the photographer. He is pretty good. There was a woman painting and I’ll put her on tomorrow. This is an amazing art museum and all the paintings in this room were the original collection of the Frye’s who donated them and their house and money to have a free museum of art in Seattle. I’m going to do a blog about it.

    1. You are welcome, Margie… did you show to Bill?

    1. That’s funny… I’ve thought that of you.

  6. Copying is a great learning exercise often derided in art schools these days. The original face is fascinating but the copy looks more like a clown mask than an individual’s features. He needs more practice on faces, but nails the rest. Everyone’s a critic, eh?
