P is for Portrait

A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.

Portraits can be:
- painted, sketched, photographic (maybe you could 'paint a portrait with words')
- literal, abstract, caricature
- of someone or of self

Been thinking of some ideas. Nothing so far...but then DD's party is today and my brain can't handle walking and chewing gum at the same time.

(I save A LOT of $$ not buying gum...soon I'll have enough for a cup of Starbucks coffee)

Hope to have something to post by next mid week.
