  1. kamilakara. Thanks for visiting Blog-Bisogno.com, and liking this quote. Wish I would have been able to track down a photo of the writer. I think this is only the second time I was unable to find a photo or painting.


  2. “Lezlie Sokol” Painted Cloud Gallery. I have no idea who John Joseph Powell is nor could I find a photo of him, but I believe this quote makes one of the most pertinent philosophical points pertaining to portraiture. I also thought it jived well with my portrait below, “Cooper Tino, 4 Years Old”.
