I started a project towards the end of 2011 and for most of 2012 of painting people who were instrumental in helping me overcome sadness and depression.  I wanted to depict them as saints or angels with head coverings as if in a medievel painting.  The project is titled the "Tronie Show".   Tronie is a Dutch word meaning head or face or facial expression and a word I first learned about when I went to Cleveland, OH to see the "Rembrandt in America" show at the Cleveland Museum of Art in May 2012.  Also included in this portfolio are portraits of other good sports willing to be  subjects for my portraiture practice.
