painted portrait of TJ Norris

Gwenn Seemel
TJ Norris
2010
acrylic on canvas
48 x 34 inches

I created this painting in eleven days. Normally I like to give myself more time to paint a portrait—anywhere from a few months to a year—but I made an exception for TJ’s portrait so that it would be ready in time for Spread Ego, an exhibition made up entirely of portraits of one man. I also made an exception for this painting, which is just as big as TJ’s and which I finished in just two days.
