Usually when someone sees one of my portraits or You Bags, they want to know how they can get me to paint them or a loved one. But, not long after Kevin started using his portable portrait, someone contacted me and asked for a Poison bag of her own! The only other portrait I’ve painted that has inspired that kind of interest in people who don’t know the subject well is this one and for very different reasons.
