What is a Giclée?


Yomi is a precious young lady who attends the same high school as my daughter, Rebekah.

This young lady is as beautiful on the inside, as she is on the out; Yomi graciously agreed to “model” for me so I could paint her portrait. As a portrait artist, I tend to “study” people and their unique features. The moment I saw Yomi, I said, “I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO PAINY HER!” So my daughter, Bekah, who is quite the photographer herself, snapped off a couple hundred pics of this beauty.

Usually, when shooting models for a portrait, we might get one or two “useable” shots in the bunch – and I’m talking out of 100 or so shots. Shooting for portraiture is not easy. The lighting, mood and composition has to be just right. Well, I have to give my daughter kudos, because she nailed it and then some! Besides, sweet Yomi couldn’t take a bad photo, even if she wanted to! I have so many great shots I don’t know what to do with them all! I actually made a photo collage and framed it for her folks, which I’m sure they were delighted to receive. I think we might see some more “Yomi portraits”, in the not so distant future…
