An original artwork from Thomas Wharton. 12x12 // oil on panel.

Comments on the painting from Wharton:When people think about artists painting portraits, the usual assumption is that getting a likeness determines the success of the work. And, likeness is important. The question though is, likeness of what? Answering that question in a work of art, raises the likeness from being a static image to that almost magical one, where the viewer feels engaged with a living personality. Having painted many portraits, I now like the challenge of very subtle expressions, which I think are more real, in that they reflect the complexity we see in each other’s faces. In giving the piece a title, I try to imagine what the person in the image is experiencing, and perhaps about to say.
