I have thought for years what fun it would be to have a portrait done as a personal fantasy......sometimes when I speak with clients...they sort of feel vain or self indlugent in having a formal oil portrait done...but this idea sometimes hits home..they can put themselves in a historical setting..an instant relative from colonial days..that also happens to look just like them...or a total fantasy, along with a pet pug...as I created in the " Rob as Zeus" combining personal objects in an adapted Ingres painting...
