““Portraiture for me is like breathing life into a painting and watching the subject come to life. The painting starts rough and loose and a bit lifeless. Then you start layering and building and shaping. With every stroke, you feel the need to keep going and pushing toward the finished image.” RF
The Tahawus Winter Spring Workshops are made possible with support from the Lake Placid Education Fund and the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round reside
