  • From the Window to the Wall

    I've always wondered how an artist decides how to paint the background of an artwork.

  • Like Seeing Myself in the Mirror

    Drawing by Edward Schmidt. When I was the one in charge of my infant cousin, I would always scramble frantically for ways to keep him entertained. Toys, sounds, and funny faces—I tried everything. But the most memorable way I kept him happy was by plopping him in front of a mirror. He'd move...

  • Think I Can Get Batman to Sit For a Portrait?

    Portrait painting is serious business. Truly, there is a lot at stake for the many professional portrait artists out there who paint dignitaries, presidents, and the like. But portraiture can also be incredibly fun! A show I saw a bit ago at Elisa Contemporary Art reinforced this for me. Their latest...
